New Rules Next Week

Twenty contemporary artists and writers reimagine Corita Kent's iconic Ten Rules.  


In the late 1960s, she and her students at the Immaculate Heart College developed their Art Department Rules. “From Consider everything an experiment” to "Be happy whenever you can manage it," these ten deceptively simple principles capture the magic of Corita's approach to creativity, culture, and activism. In this volume, ten writers and ten artists look back at the rules and show us how vital and resonant they remain today.  


Illustrators, designers, educators, curators, former students, and colleagues of Corita's -- the illustrious contributors to this volume offer a kaleidoscope of perspectives on the artist's legacy. The wide-ranging roster of contributors includes  Rebeca Anaya, Gail Anderson, Juliette Bellocq, Lisa Congdon, Dan Paley, Eric Dever, Lenore Dowling, Jeffrey Gibson, Vashti Harrison, Jen Hewett, Howsem Huang, Erin Jang, Amos Paul Kennedy, Haven Lin-Kirk, Barbara Loste, MacFadden & Thorpe, Mickey Myers, Carissa Potter, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, Karina Esperanza Yánez.
