Event Details

Design West Michigan & Kendall College of Art & Design are proud to present Ralph Caplan for the first Kendall International Design Colloquium.

 

For more than fifty years, Ralph Caplan has been thinking, writing, and speaking about design and collaborating with designers on exhibitions, films, and publications. His work has addressed the design process as encompassing not only products, but also the larger context in which they are used. Caplan is the author and editor of several books, including By Design: Why There Are No Locks on the Bathroom Doors in the Hotel Louis XIV and Other Object Lessons and Cracking the Whip: Essays on Design and Its Side Effects. A former editor of I.D. magazine, Caplan continues to contribute to numerous books and periodicals and to lecture across the United States and abroad. He teaches a graduate course in design criticism at the School of Visual Arts.
