Event Description

Join us as we welcome designer Stephen Burks to the stage. He will discuss his exhibition Stephen Burks: Shelter in Place and the ways that it explores ideas concerning domesticity. Stephen Burks will be in conversation with curator and writer, Glenn Adamson.

As an African American designer, Burks has forged a unique path by embracing the challenge to advocate for hand production as a strategy for innovation within industrial production. Shelter in Place will also demonstrate Burks’s holistic approach across the disciplines of art, architecture, and design that underscores principles of synthesizing craft, community, and industry.
