Carnegie Mellon 2014 MFA Thesis Exhibition
Organized by the CMU School of Art

Artists: Carl Bajandas, Oreen Cohen, Yunmi Her

With the annual MFA Thesis Exhibition, graduating students receive the valuable experience of participating in a professional gallery exhibition while giving the community an opportunity to see work by some of the most exciting and promising new artists emerging from Carnegie Mellon.

"For this culminating exhibition [the artists] are exploring new territory. An inventor of kinetic metal machines decides to go multi-sensual. A sculptor recycling post-industrial waste creates a ritualistic performance for an immersive video experience. A videographer concerned with the perceptual relationship between the virtual and the real, delves into the psychology of the quotidian." writes John Carson, Head of the School of Art and the Regina and Marlin Miller Professor.

@Vox Populi, Philadelphia
Alien She
Curated by Astria Suparak + Ceci Moss
Organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon

We kicked off the Alien She exhibition tour with a full house at the reception and after-party at Vox Populi in Philadelphia. Among the diverse crowd were many
first-time visitors and several groups who travelled to be there.
So far we've received many positive responses to the exhibit and nearly three times the Facebook "Likes" than any of our exhibitions! Here are some comments:

"It's a stunning tribute both to the ideas it commemorates and to the artists it showcases."

"Very inspiring & humbling to see all of this great stuff from such an important movement represented. Zines are so vital, but so transitory and temporary that it really was awesome to see so many in one place."

"Fantastic collection, engaging and dynamic. Enjoyed the tie-in with recent artists and works. Thank you!"

Recent Press:

Exposition Chicago:
"The entire show is like walking into a living archive—a Derridean commencement and commandment—'this is what riot grrrl was and this is what riot grrrl continues to be.'" - Art Seen, March 24, 2014

Vice Magazine:
"Alien She curators Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss have exhaustively pulled together a comprehensive exploration into the feminist punk rock movement... The riot grrrl scene runs deep both in terms of the other art it inspired and the ethos and attitude it bred."-
March 7, 2014

Philadelphia Weekly: "A collection of works that investigate and celebrate the long-lasting influences of the riot grrrl movement" - Bill Chenevert, March 5, 2014

Philadelphia City Paper: "Ambitious... Riot Grrrl culture still impacts artists working today." - Maggie Grabmeier, March 6, 2014

The Philadelphia Secret Admirer: "Admirable Event of the Week: The exhibit showcases the work of various artists across multiple mediums to give a cohesive snapshot of the empowering, DIY energy that so entirely changed and strengthened not only punk and radical scenes, but the world at large." - March 4, 2014

@Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, NYC
Intimate Science

Curated by Andrea Grover
Organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon
on view until April 15, 2014

It's been a
n incredible tour for Intimate Science. Curated by Andrea Grover and produced by the Miller Gallery in 2012, the exhibition has travelled nationwide for the past two years and is on its final stop at Sheila C. Johnson Design Center - Parsons The New School for Design in New York.

Recent Press:

"Freely mixing science and politics, BCL's bio-hacked carnations are not only effective tests of a problematic legal system. They also question our ideas about the natural world, which we tend to assume...encompasses everything but us. Pell's museum is less confrontational ...we recognize that we're living in the anthropocene - an epoch in which human activity is the predominant natural force - the Center for PostNatural History will be ready to provide natural history museums with specimens of human-evolved organisms that might otherwise be lost."

Core77: "Ross' intrigue with mycotecture isn't just an experiment in food design. His inspiration stems from a lifelong interest in biology...currently a part of the 'Intimate Science' exhibition at Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design, which features designers working at the intersection of art, science and technology." - Erika Rae, Feb. 25, 2014
