Exhibit Opening Friday, 14 September, 6-8pm

imperfect healthThe Miller Gallery, Carnegie Mellon's award-winning and critically acclaimed contemporary art gallery, will present the U.S. premiere of "Imperfect Health: The Medicalization of Architecture," which examines today's emerging health problems juxtaposed with a variety of proposed architectural and urban solutions.
 
The exhibit opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 14, and will run through Feb. 24, 2013. A tour at 4:30 p.m., led by the curators, precedes the opening reception. 
 
"'Imperfect Health' makes an insightful contribution to local and national dialogues around health problems, and whether architecture and design should take on prescriptive roles," says Astria Suparak, director of the Miller Gallery.
