The Department of Arts, Culture & Media at Rutgers University-Newark, is pleased to share the 2021 senior graphic design capstone exhibition, INTERTWINED, Designing Systems For The Future We Want.  The capstone exhibition includes seventeen transmedia projects that individually examine systems of/& interdependency taking into account the events of 2020-2021, seen through the lens of communications design.
As we continue to work as a community toward reducing the spread of COVID-19, the 2021 capstone exhibition will be presented virtually within a simulated gallery space opening LIVE on April 30th, 2021.
The purpose of this exhibition is to present our commitment to dedicate our work as designers entering the work field, to the reform of systems that support our communities.

About the show:

We are an interdependent system.
The extreme conditions of the years 2020-2021 have, more than ever, affirmed how inextricably tied we are to one another. The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed truths about our communities, our government, our ecology, our economy and our social constructs. We’ve seen the worst andthe best unfold. And through the pronounced exposure of unequal social, public health and economic systems, we have also witnessed creatives working their hardest; dedicating their abilities and ingenuity to aid our communities, show gratitude towards front line workers, creating new systems to support the sick, and finding ways to strengthen and empower voices during a global rise to advance racial and socioeconomic justice.
These acts of empathy, sensibility, respect and love, acknowledge our social system as an interconnectednetwork of embedded systems by design — democracy, health system, education system, environmentalin/justice, to name a few — and require us to own up to our individual responsibility towards collective wellbeing.
We are aware of our impact.

As we continue to work as a community toward reducing the spread of COVID-19, the 2021capstone exhibition will be presented virtually within a simulated gallery space opening LIVE on Friday April 30th, 2021. Please tune in this Friday at 6pm through acmbfa.design/intertwined/exhibition for opening remarks and a LIVE TOUR of INTERTWINED.

The ACM Graphic Design Program is especially thankful to Joseph Labib, from the Form Design Studio at Express Newark, who produced this impressive virtual experience, and who’s commitment is fueled by his intention to create experiences that uplifts the work of others.
