Carnegie Mellon 2014 Senior Art Exhibition
Organized by the School of Art
May 3 - 17, 2014
"The 2014 Senior Art Exhibition includes work that is weird, glamorous, poetic, delicate, provocative, cryptic, outrageous, beautiful, ingenious, contemplative and more. Always searching and exploring, this final exhibition of work by the senior students is the culminating expression of their time at Carnegie Mellon. As well as developing their own work, they have built a set of artistic relationships, which will sustain them well into the future."

Head of the School of Art + Regina and Marlin Miller Professor

The Biennial celebrates the region's most compelling artists as well as our unique visual arts landscape. Through partnership with seven of the city's leading visual arts presenting organizations, the Pittsburgh Biennial offers a more complete cross section of the region's artists across our great city!

Visitors poured into Vox Populi in Philadelphia the last few weeks to view Alien She, traveling from New York City, Baltimore, D.C., Chicago, Montreal, Connecticut, Delaware, and Pittsburgh. Events at Vox Populi included local performances, a discussion on feminism and race, a self-defense workshop, Women who ROCK karaoke, a zine workshop, and more.
If you are on the west coast and have missed the exhibition and events, you're in luck! The Alien She exhibition opens it's third iteration Oct. 24 at Yerba Buena Center for Arts.
Alien She is "the first exhibition to explore the legacy of the Riot Grrrl punk feminist movement... [It] 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." (Artforum). The show features new work by a half-dozen contemporary artists, alongside a host of rare archival materials.
Recent responses from visitors:
"Just saw 'Alien She' at Vox Populi and my life is changed."
"I loved seeing the show...the strength of these creative unabashed women reminds me why I do what I do."
The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage:
Exclusive interview with Miranda July on Riot Grrrl and Joanie 4 Jackie: "Creating a loose underground network of women filmmakers actually did sustain me and teach me what I needed to know"
The Philadelphia Inquirer:
"One of the most interesting things is that we've seen how Riot Grrrl has influenced our friends, peers, artists, and colleagues today," Moss said. "Riot Grrrl has had an impact not just in the communities we're involved in, but also internationally."
