For the month of February the Miller Gallery displays and distributes Art Work: A National Conversation About Art, Labor, and Economics, a free newspaper that consists of writings and images from artists, activists, writers, critics, and others on the topic of working within depressed economies and how that impacts artistic process, compensation, and artistic property.

Art Work was produced by
Temporary Services, a Chicago-based group composed of Brett Bloom, Salem Collo-Julin and Marc Fischer. Temporary Services produces exhibitions, events, projects, and publications. "Our name directly reflects the desire to provide art as a service to others. It is a way for us to pay attention to the social context in which art is produced and received."

MISS(ED) IT?

Contestational Cartographies

The three-day Contestational Cartographies Symposium organized by Miller Gallery + the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University in January was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who came to and participated in the workshops, presentations, lectures, tour, exhibition + discussion.

The Yes Men

The Yes Men + the filmmakers behind The End of Poverty? create a parallel, imaginary World Economic Forum in which world leaders came up with real solutions to poverty. See CEOs and politicians own up to wrongdoings and promise to behave better in the future.
