Adia Millett
Pre-Fabricated Innocence

MAY 2005

Mixed Greens is pleased to announce an exhibition of new miniatures and photographs by Adia Millett. This will be Adia’s first solo exhibition in New York and Mixed Green’s first exhibition in their new space. Adia Millet’s ambitious miniature project was chosen to inaugurate Mixed Green’s new gallery at 531 West 26th Street.

Adia’s new body of work includes eight miniature buildings modeled after brick housing units in Chicago and over a dozen corresponding photographs. Each house is handcrafted at a one-inch to one-foot scale and consists of an upper and lower floor with only one room on each floor. In Adia’s own words, “Here is where art steps off of the canvas and into the bedroom of some complete stranger, where the viewer can become the art. I attempt to promote a space where site specificity, found objects, craft, concept and form create a dialogue for characters to develop and memories resurface.“
