Marilyn Minter’s paintings, videos, and photographs explore humanity’s search for pleasure by depicting lushly rendered high heels, mouths, or babies. Her recent work, created by placing a pane of glass between herself and her subject, becomes splattered with glistening paint, infusing her hyper-realistically rendered work with oozing abstraction.
Minter’s solo exhibitions include Salon 94, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Center for Contemporary Art, Cincinnati; La Conservera, Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Ceutí/Murcia, Spain; Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland; and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Germany and Venice Biennale, both in 2011. Her videoGreen Pink Caviar was exhibited in the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City for more than a year and shown on digital billboards on Sunset Boulevard in LA, and the Creative Time MTV billboard in Times Square, New York.

AIADO has invited Ezio Manzini to speak on Monday, November 14th, at
6PM, as part of the Mitchell Lecture Series.
It goes without saying this is a rare opportunity on two levels, the
first being Ezio himself as an expert in sustainability in design and a
robust, personable character, and the second the dynamic panel that
will create immediate context for Ezio’s ideas in Chicago. We do not
want our students to miss this.
While the intellectual stimulation is more than enough enticement, we
are also providing AIADO students (and you!) a little nosh immediately
before the lecture. There will be pizza and soda served in Columbus 201

NO MORE. NO LESS. | A Solo Exhibition by Allison Wade
Parallax Gallery, October 6–27 TODAY!!!
★ Opening Reception: Thursday, October 6, 4–6 PM.
Allison Wade’s sculptures and prints rely on a calibrated balance between seemingly disparate elements. Margins of negative space and points of connection are visually as important as the more materially substantial elements. Simultaneously aware of the specific relationships of the parts and the coherence of the whole, the viewer senses a new logic—one that invites investigation and interpretation. In “No More. No Less.”, Wade installs these works in conversation with one another, arranging them so that the connections punctuate the viewers’ navigation of the space. The appearance of certain sculptures’ ability to resist gravity and to remain standing speaks to hope as well as physics.
