Newcity released its 2018 "Design 50" issue, which recognizes the leading voices in Chicago design. More than 20 members of the SAIC community were recognized, including the designers taking part in the Dimensions of Citizenship exhibition at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Included on the list were exhibitors Andres L. Hernandez (MA 2004, Art Education) and his collaborator Amanda Williams; Jeanne Gang (HON 2013) of Studio Gang; associate curator Iker Gil (AIADO); and curatorial advisor Theaster Gates (HON 2014). Not only did lead curator Ann Lui (AIADO) make the list, but she was also singled out as the Designer of the Moment for the issue’s cover story. The cover story was written by Newcity design editor Vasia Rigou (MA 2015).
