Figure One Exhibition Space

Bio / Description: 

Figure One is a laboratory that supports projects, exhibitions and events stemming from all areas of study at the undergraduate and graduate levels at The University of Illinois School of Art + Design.

As an off-campus venue, Figure One is a public test bed for new ideas to take shape in the space between the safety of the classroom and the rigor of the professional world. The goal of the space is to fuel critical dialogue between students of the School of Art + Design and the broader University and local communities. As such, all programming of the space seeks to broaden the scope of discourse for student activity at the School.

Figure One achieves these goals through student-initiated programming and productive synthesis with existing School of Art + Design initiatives such as the Visitors Series and other public programs.
