From the New York Public Library: "Mid-Manhattan Library presents More than a Passing Glance an exhibition of large scale color photographs by well-known photographer Jan Staller. At once recognizable and yet abstract the striking images made during 2010 - 2011 depict construction sites, scrap metal yards, parking lots, boat yards and other places ordinarily visited for their intended function and assumed not to offer much visual delight, except when they appear in Staller's photographs."

On view through October 13, Randall's Island
MICA CONNECTION: Sean Wrenn '08 (Mount Royal)
Sean Wrenn's Awakening Asylum is designed around formal elements and conceptual themes emerging from the General Slocum Steamship disaster (June 15, 1904) and the history of Randall's Island as a place of "Asylum" for inebriates, idiots and insane urban residents. The location of the sculpture will commemorate the ship's Hell Gate waterway passage where it is thought that the steamship fire likely began. Due to faulty unregulated flotation devices and poor crew response times (for beaching quickly on Wards Island's Sunken Meadow), over 1,000 people perished in the Northern East River on their way to a Lutheran picnic excursion on the sound in Queens.

Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good
On view August 29 through November 25, 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale
MICA CONNECTION: Graham Coreil-Allen '10 (Mount Royal)
Situated within disparate zones of overlap, contradiction, ambiguity and interstice, the ongoing New Public Sites project consists of playful walking tours, radical maps and poetic typology that investigate the ways in which invisible sites and overlooked features exist within our everyday environment. The New Public Sites walking tours will be included in Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good, the official U.S. presentation at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale. Organized by commissioner and curator Cathy Lang Ho of the Institute for Urban Design, with Ned Cramer and David van der Leer, the exhibition features an array of direct action strategies for improving the urban public realm, represented through a system of interactive hanging banners and pedestrian installations.
