YEAR IN REVIEW

This last season was one of the most successful at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, with higher attendances and more critical attention than ever. We presented work from 41 countries, produced the first-ever survey of The Yes Men (Keep It Slick) and Julia Christensen’s solo exhibition (Your Town, Inc.), mounted a newly designed version of Signs of Change: Social Movement Cultures 1960s to Now, hosted the annual Carnegie Mellon MFA and BFA shows (Upper Management, From The Vault), and launched several new programs.

We are excited to share with you our recent accomplishments and new initiatives. In our Year In Review, you will find previews of our upcoming exhibitions and new membership drive. We hope you will join us as we enter our ninth year on this high note.

PRESS

In the last year, the Miller Gallery was mentioned in USA Today, Art Papers, "All Things Considered" on National Public Radio, Architect Magazine, Rhizome, Artnet Magazine + was a front page story of the Pittsburgh City Paper.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that director Astria Suparak's "appointment and programming are also signals from Carnegie Mellon University that it's moving full throttle into a leadership role among university and alternative galleries...

The on-target contemporary vision displayed by city newbies like Suparak and Warhol curator Eric Shiner, coupled with the solid reputations of our more traditional institutions, bodes well for Pittsburgh's growth and success, serving residents and adding to the region's attractiveness to new investors."
