Decolonizing Design II
January 23 @ 8:00 am - January 27 @ 4:30 pm
Clark and Laura Boyce Gallery, 104 Julian T. Hall (formerly Design Building)
LSU School of Interior Design’s exhibition “Decolonizing Design II” follows a fall 2022 exhibition based on the Racism Untaught training and an interior design studio exploring the intersection of design and racism. Decolonizing Design II takes these lessons and explores the ingenuity of Indigenous designs. Students explored how to become a participant in the evolving authenticity of people and place. They learned to hear, respect and honor the perspective of the other by immersing themselves in the lived experiences of over 60 indigenous populations around the world. They researched past and present indigenous peoples to learn from and to humble themselves regarding the lessons of their ingenuity and the values they bring to their making process. Students’ final projects were a result of their individual research and area of personal interest and design discipline. They were required to innovate their designs based on the values of the indigenous culture they researched and to ensure their solutions “belonged” to the cultural DNA + geographic location of that community.
The exhibition is on view in the Boyce Gallery in Julian T. White Hall from January 23-27, 2023.
