Intimate Science explores the most recent investigations by artists working at the intersection of art, science, and technology. The exhibition looks at artist-initiated research in a scientific or technological area and notes the dramatic shift from artists operating on the periphery of research to conducting research themselves. The artists in Intimate Science have a sustained and intimate relationship to their studies and contribute in a meaningful way to cross-disciplinary discourse.
The Intimate Science exhibition and tour is organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and is presented in San Francisco with additional programming and events by Southern Exposure and work by SoEx’s Youth Advisory Board.
The exhibition is accompanied by a densely illustrated publication, New Art/Science Affinities (Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon + STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, 2011). Co-authored by Grover, Régine Debatty, Claire Evans and Pablo Garcia, designed by Thumb, the book features more than 60 international artists and collaboratives
