The Creative Time Summit is a two-day conference that brings more than forty cultural producers together to discuss how their work engages pressing issues affecting our world. Their international projects bring to the table a vast array of practices and methodologies that engage with the canvas of everyday life. The participants range from art world luminaries to those purposefully obscure, providing a glimpse into an evolving community concerned with the political implications of socially engaged art. The Creative Time Summit is meant to be an opportunity to not only uncover the tensions that such a global form of working presents, but also to provide opportunities for new coalitions and sympathetic affinities.

WHATEVER IT TAKES:
Steelers Fan Collections, Rituals, and Obsessions

Curated by Jon Rubin and Astria Suparak
Through Jan. 30, 2011

Over 500 people attended the Immaculate Reception for the Whatever It Takes exhibition on Sept. 10th - one of the highest attended events at the Miller Gallery.

The exhibition was featured in the New York Times, on ABC-affiliate WTAE Action News, and on the covers of Pittsburgh City Paper, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (headline story!), and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Magazine.

RECENT PRESS

"Whatever It Takes [is] an exhibit that explores the culture of Steelers Nation and the personal relationship between the team and its fans." - "The Steelers at the Intersection of Iron City Beer and Art Basel," New York Times

"Appropriately called Whatever It Takes, check this out!" - ABC-affiliate WTAE Action News

"It's a shrine to Steeler mania and a testament to the fans' intensely personal relationship with the team" - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

"In creating this amusing, endearing portrait of Pittsburgh sports fans, the curators aimed to examine how fans become producers of culture by constructing their personal and social identities in relation to the team. The result is that the gallery feels like a fun house where Steelers Nation is reflected through a thousand mirrors."
- "CMU exhibit shows how fans created Steeler Nation culture," Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Interactive view: All Steelers all the time in this fan shrine at CMU's Miller Gallery"- "Pittsburgh Revolution," Post-Gazette

"The latest pop subculture to be tackled by the Miller Gallery is one that's very close to home... The first-of-its-kind exhibition reflects the cultural, psychological and emotional forces at work behind the Steel Curtain" - "Art Score: The Immaculate Reception," Pop City Media

"Quite possibly the first art exhibit in the known universe dedicated to Steelers fans."
- "The Art of Steeler Fandom," Post-Gazette Sports Blog


WHATEVER IT TAKES: Steelers Fan Collections, Rituals, and Obsessions looks at the particular and ingenious methods Steelers fans use to construct their own personal and social identities in relation to the team, and in the process, create an active community of cultural producers. Through countless fan sites, gameday rituals, costumes, tattoos, videos, unlicensed merchandise, and more, Steelers fans brilliantly remix and meld the team's identity with their own.

o

Reaching countless people through websites, newspapers, and television broadcasts, the sometimes anonymous Yes Men are among the most visible and effective artist-activists of our time. Over the past dozen years they have fearlessly taken on the world's biggest corporations and bureaucracies through a process they call "Identity Correction," helping to keep critical issues in the international spotlight. KEEP IT SLICK represents the first-ever solo exhibition of The Yes Men.
