OPENING IN CONNECTICUT
Curated by Andrea Grover
Organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon
Opens Saturday, November 3, 6-8pm
@ Real Art Ways, Hartford
Intimate Science at Real Art Ways is the third iteration of our touring exhibition which premiered earlier this year at the Miller Gallery. This exhibition looks at artist-initiated research in scientific and technological domains, and includes BCL, Center for PostNatural History, Markus Kayser, Allison Kudla, Machine Project and Philip Ross.
Yale University's Sage Magazine:
"None of the artist-researchers in Grover’s exhibit have advanced degrees in science, yet they have cultivated expertise in peculiar niches, in some cases inventing their own biotechnologies."
"Intimate Science tries to have it both ways, dipping its toe in the utopian stream of Internet theory and positing, first, that the free exchange of research, tools, and information constitutes a viable oppositional strategy to mechanisms of power and, second, that the resulting products can form a new, hybrid, information-based art that repositions our ineffable relationship to the natural world."

The Medicalization of Architecture
On view through Feb. 24, 2013
Curated by Giovanna Borasi + Mirko Zardini
Organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture
Premiering in the U.S. at the Miller Gallery, Imperfect Health features a wide range of works that together examine the complex relationships between design and health.
The exhibition includes works by an international group of architects, artists, designers, and institutions, including Bernd and Hilla Becher, Berkeley Institute of Design and Intel Labs, BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), Mel Chin, Todd Haynes, Henry Dreyfuss Associates, Steven Holl Architects, Gordon Matta-Clark, Niall McLaughlin, MIT AgeLab, Morphosis, MVRDV, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture), Philippe Rahm, François Roche, SANAA, and Alison and Peter Smithson.
"A first-of-its-kind exhibition at Carnegie Mellon’s Miller Gallery is posing a thoughtful and timely question: can architecture and design really cure what ails us—or only offer imperfect solutions? In an era of indoor living, overuse of Purell and epidemic levels of obesity and diabetes, the question is one that's both critical and charged."
