    Andrea Zittel, An Institute of Investigative Living, opens tomorrow at Miller ICA, CMU Pittsburgh. Curated by Elizabeth Chodos, Jan 25–Mar 8, 2020 Andrea Zittel’s work rests at the intersection of art, architecture, and design. A world-builder, Zittel’s practice manifests within her live/work residence A-Z West– an artwork and homestead located on over seventy acres in the California high desert next to Joshua Tree National Park. Since its inception A-Z West has functioned as an evolving testing grounds for living—a place in which spaces, objects, and acts of living all intertwine into a single ongoing investigation into what it means to exist and participate in our culture today. “How to live?” and “What gives life meaning?” are core issues in both Zittel’s personal life and artistic practice. Answering these questions has entailed exploring complex relationships between our need for freedom, security, autonomy, authority, and control—observing how structure and limitations often have the capacity to generate feelings of freedom beyond open-ended choices. This exhibition surveys work spanning many years, and a wide range of media including furniture, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, painting, and two newly commissioned room-sized patterned tile-floors. The exhibition demonstrates the immersive gestalt of Zittel’s all encompassing practice where every material aspect of daily life is examined and her ethos for living guides all action. @andreazittel @xchodosx @millericacmu #andreazittel #pittsburgh
