Andrea Grover is the Curator of Special Projects at the Parrish Art Museum, where she is initiating new models for temporary and off-site exhibitions via the Museum’s Platform and Parrish Road Show series. From 1998–2008, she was the Founding Director of Houston’s Aurora Picture Show, a non-profit cinema specializing in media art and the presentation of multi-disciplinary performances and screenings. In addition to ten years of film and video programming at Aurora, she has curated film programs for both the Dia Art Foundation and The Menil Collection. In 2010, she was awarded a Warhol Curatorial Fellowship, jointly hosted by the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, to research artists working at the intersection of science and technology. The outcome of that Fellowship is the 2011 publication, “New Art/Science Affinities,” co-authored with Claire Evans, Régine Debatty, Pablo Garcia, and the design collaborative Thumb, that profiles over 60 contemporary artists working in maker culture, hacking, artistic research, citizen science, and computational art. The corresponding exhibition, Intimate Science, opened at Miller Gallery in January 2012, and toured to Southern Exposure, San Francisco, Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT, Williamson Gallery, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA, Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum, University of Louisiana, Lafayette, LA, and Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC), Parsons The New School for Design, New York, NY. Intimate Science followed her earlier exploration of artists working across disciplines in 29 Chains to the Moon, an exhibition curated for Miller Gallery in 2009. Her earliest exhibitions exploring collective creativity were Phantom Captain, presented at apexart, New York, in 2006, and Never Been to Tehran, co-curated with artist Job Rubin, and presented at Parkingallery, Tehran, Iran, in 2008. She studied visual art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA 1995), Syracuse University (BFA 1992), and Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design (1991). She was a Core Fellow in residence at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston from 1995-1997, and was a 2013 Center for Curatorial Leadership Fellow. Her forthcoming exhibitions include Maya Lin: Platform, Parrish Art Museum, 2014, and Radical Seafaring, Parrish Art Museum, 2016.
