Artist Talk: Hannah Higgins on ‘The Grid Book’

November 21, 2023 at 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Cover of The Grid BookIn conjunction with the exhibition Pattern, the Grid, and Other Systems, artist and author Hannah B Higgins will give a talk on The Grid Book, in which she examines the history of 10 grids that changed the world: the brick, the tablet, the gridiron city plan, the map, musical notation, the ledger, the screen, moveable type, the manufactured box, and the net.

Pattern, the Grid, and Other Systems is on display in the Art and Design Gallery through December 3 and features work that utilizes and explores all aspects of repetition and pattern. Pattern is often thought of in terms of art and design: the repetition of shape in surface design. But the definition of pattern can be even more expansive: It’s a regularity or repetition in the world in general. It includes the repetition of abstract ideas as well as form. The exhibition includes two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and time-based artwork from FIT faculty, students, and distinguished alumni, as well as from guest artists.

This event is for the FIT community only.
