His lecture will present examples that go from the design of the interaction with digital TV to the design of a tea-cup to introduce his personal experience in designing with this in mind.

Video art provocateur and art world sensation Ryan Trecartin comes to CCS as Center Galleries presents the exclusive Detroit premiere of the LA-based artist's head-spinning, lavishly colored video series "Trill-ogy COMP," direct from his MoMA-PS1 exhibition "Any Ever." Peter Schjeldahl calls him "the most consequential artist to have emerged since the 1980s." After his break-out first solo exhibition at Elizabeth Dee Gallery in New York, Trecartin went on to take part in the 2099 "Younger Than Jesus" exhibition at The New Museum, where he was lauded as the highlight of the show. CineFamily Los Angeles says: "Trecartin's work grabs you by the throat and hijacks your brain, taking you on a completely dazzling non-linear hire wire journey and dropping you out the other end zapped and spray-painted." Trecartin will talk about his work in a public lecture on December 8 at 6:30pm and, immediately following, a ticketed preview party for his exhibition will take as a fundraiser for Center Galleries. RSVP here Woodward Lecture: December 8, 2011 @ 6:30 p.m. General Motors Auditorium College for Creative Studies A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education, 11th floor 460 W.
