Gallery East Presents Unique Art Lending Program

Cambridge, MA – Gallery East and Nest.Bio are set to premier Playful Vision, an exhibition featuring the paintings of Artem Mirolevich and the photography of Daniel Baird-Miller. The Exhibit will run through June 2, 2018 with the artist reception on Friday, April 27, 2018 from 5-8 p.m. and is open to the public (Nest.Bio is located at 325 Vassar St, 2nd floor). Three Gallery talks will run concurrent with the exhibition. Refreshments will be served. The reception and gallery talks are FREE.

Launched in partnership with leading entrepreneurs, Nest.Bio Labs is a shared community designed from the ground-up to hatch revolutionary biotechnology ventures. The new exhibit brings together science and art through Baird-Miller’s experimental film photography and the visionary worlds of Mirolevich’s paintings. “Most art lending programs feature a variety of different artists work throughout the workplace.” said exhibit curator Duane Lucia, “This program is a full on exhibition by two very innovative artists with the objective to get scientists who work in a cutting edge environment to experience art outside the box.”

Daniel Baird-Miller was born and raised in Brewster, NY. He has been exhibiting his photographs since 2007. He received his BFA in photography from the Hartford Art School and his MFA in photography from Lesley University College of Art and Design. His fascination with the process of making a photograph lead him to use large format cameras as well as rudimentary hand built cameras. “My relationship with photography has compelled me to look microscopically at the process itself. I am enamored with the space between the lens and the film plane. For me, the photograph no longer serves as a document or illustration, but as the artifact and evidence of an intimate performance.”

Artem Mirolevich was born in Minsk, Belarus and immigrated to the U.S. with his family at the age of 17, making their home in Buffalo, NY. Soon after his arrival, Artem enrolled in the School of Visual Art, in New York City, and was granted a scholarship from the Department of Illustration. He would later study at the Rietvield Academy of Art in Amsterdam. Intrigued by the city’s cultural and architectural landscape, he used this inspiration to produce many works of art, including images of a post-apocalyptic city submerged deep under water. “Science fiction has been my greatest inspiration since childhood, I grew up reading it, watching it and creating it.” says Mirolevich, “I always loved creating my own universes and science fiction is the best field for it.” Based in New York City, Mirolevich has exhibited in museums and galleries all over the world, including the New Museum (NYC), Museum of Tolerance (Moscow), Miami Art Basel, and has won numerous awards and commissions.
