The Polygon X Capilano University: Cmns 295

For the summer course Communication 295: The Culture of Advertising, students at Capilano University were challenged to create a work of “brandalism,” adopting visual strategies of commercial marketing to raise awareness of social, cultural, or environmental issues. To think about intervening in advertisements, they drew inspiration from The Polygon Gallery’s exhibition archive, observing how artists appropriate and remix images in order to transform context and meaning. We’re pleased to share the class’s digital poster projects here.

Thank you to instructor Ki Wight, Capilano University, and the students of CMNS 295!
