Crossing the Line: Paintings by Steve Miller

August 5, 2013 - January 23, 2014

National Academy of Sciences, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W.

Photo ID required. No charge.

For the past decade, Steve Miller has made provocative artworks based on his collaboration with Rod MacKinnon, a Nobel Prize winner for his breakthrough work on the movement of ions across cell membranes. In paintings that juxtapose photographic, drawn, and silk-screened images with excerpts from MacKinnon's notebooks, Miller's work dissolves conventional distinctions between text and image to explore what distinguishes art from science.
