Since Minneapolis has become a hotbed of design, so has the Walker and AIGA’s annual Insights Design Lecture Series, which started back in 1987. While the series focuses largely on graphic design, the enthusiasm, freshness, and spirit of innovation that each speaker brings to the podium infuses new possibility in how we see and think about our world. Visual culture, along with its environmental and educational interventions, is always at the fore. When Archie Lee Coates IV of New York City’s Playlab kicks off the series, minds will be blown. His work includes creating a graphic identity for a millennial sex-toy company, exhibiting paintings in Reykjavik, making films of Joaquin Phoenix walking, and designing a clothing collection for a nonprofit. He’s seemingly done it all—and brilliantly.
