Harbor Gallery Presents: “A World of Questions”

Award-winning Zimbabwean designer Chaz Maviyane-Davies has said that graphic design has been used brilliantly to sell autos, oil, and political candidates. Why not use it to promote our common good?

On display at UMass Boston's student-run Harbor Gallery from February 2 through March 12, Maviyane-Davies' posters ask the viewer to engage with important issues—the environment, the economy, fossil fuels, endangered species, and a host of others. Each image makes a statement. A quote deepens the meaning. 

The exhibition will engage students and faculty from UMass Boston in a variety of ways:

There will be an opening reception for "A World of Questions" on Thursday, February 5 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Harbor Gallery, located on the first floor of McCormack Hall. The exhibit and the opening reception are free and open to the public. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 1 to 7 p.m.

The book A World of Questions - 120 Posters on the Human Condition will be available in April on Maviyane-Davies' website.
