The Yeezus tour took a stop while in Boston to visit the Harvard Graduate School of Design on Sunday for the “DONDA Design Lecture Series”.
Before Kanye West was a internationally recognized rapper, he was a student at Chicago’s American Academy of Art, so it made perfect sense for him to drop by and see what the students were up to and also talk to them about the impact of art. “I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be architected,” West said. “If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about realization, self realization, and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. So the reason why I turn up so much in interviews is because I’ve tasted what it means to create and be able to impact, and affect in a positive way.”
Along for the visit was his fiance, Kim Kardashian who posted a photo (below) with the caption, “My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.”
In addition to giving a mini lecture and signing autographs, West also checked out the architecture students’ work. He also invited them to his show, showing bit of humility. “I’m a bit self conscious because I’m showing it to architects. So the stage does have flaws in it. It’s an expression of emotion so give me a pass on that.”
