This nationally touring exhibition provides a view into the passion and diversity of the original Riot Grrrl movement and highlights how these ideas have broadened, evolved and mutated in the work of contemporary artists.
Artforum Critics' Pick:
"Alien She, the first exhibition to explore the legacy of the Riot Grrrl punk feminist movement...dynamically aggregates art and craft, video documentary, print ephemera, and music, concentrating on Riot Grrrl's sphere of influence in North America from the early 1990s to the present." - Chelsea Haines, 1/ 2014
Pittsburgh City Paper:
"Alien She is superbly designed, comprehensive and approachable...
Alien She resounds riot grrrl's, and feminism's, hold on contemporary life. It says, 'This happened, keep going.'"
- Michelle Fried, "Alien She explores riot-grrrl's influence on art and culture: Miller Gallery exhibit goes beyond music into film, installation work and more," 11/ 2013

OUR 1ST SHOW IN NYC
@ Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC),
Parsons The New School for Design
Feb. 6 - April 15, 2014
The sixth and final stop of the nationwide tour of Intimate Science will take place at the SJDC, an institution that aims to generate an active dialogue on the role of innovative art and design in responding to our contemporary world, with programming that encourages interdisciplinary examination of possibility and process.
Intimate Science features artists who are engaged in non-disciplinary inquiry; they aren't allied to the customs of any single field, and therefore have license to reach beyond conventions. Through their engagement with "intimate science," a more knowledgeable public might well be able to influence what research is supported and adopted by the larger culture, and the walls of science can become more transparent.
Please join Intimate Science curator Andrea Grover, artists Philip Ross and Rich Pell from the Center for PostNatural History, Miller Gallery's Tesar Freeman, Astria Suparak, and the SJDC team at the opening on Feb. 6.
Intimate Science at Williamson Gallery, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA, with work by
