Ali Shamas Qadeer Lecture
December 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Ali Shamas Qadeer is a designer and educator based in Toronto. He works in web, print, and web and print. After completing a BA in philosophy and religious studies at McGill University, he developed an independent design practice in New York City before returning to school to complete an MFA at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2014. His work focuses on algorithmic formmaking, unorthodox toolmaking, and the disciplinary and economic structures that design practices buttress. After returning to Canada in 2014, Ali joined the faculty of OCADU where he is an Assistant Professor in the graphic and industrial design programs. In his teaching practice, Ali champions a critical approach that always refracts through a practice of formalism and making.
On Monday, December 2, 2019 at 7pm, Plug In ICA is excited to present a lecture by Ali Shamas Qadeer as part of Labour of Love: On Digital Economies in the Arts, a series of lectures, screenings, and workshops.
