Harvard GSD has installed GSD: A–Z 2020 & 2021, the first exhibition on view inside of Gund Hall since campus buildings closed in March 2020. The exhibition welcomes back the Harvard GSD community by celebrating the pedagogical output of the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021. Student work—images, illustrations, abstracts, and other material—is organized into a grid-like visual structure in Gund Hall’s Druker Design Gallery. Multimedia projections disrupt the grid and shift the scale of each image across three channels, generating a scroll-through effect. Prize-winning design projects from the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 are on view in a complementary installation inside Harvard GSD’s Frances Loeb Library.

GSD: A–Z 2020 & 2021 previews forthcoming publications A–Z: Harvard University Graduate School of Design 2020 and A–Z: Harvard University Graduate School of Design 2021, which convey student work and dialogue from the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 in book form.

Please note that Gund Hall, the Druker Design Gallery, and other Harvard GSD campus buildings and spaces are open only to Harvard University ID holders at this time.
