Avanian-pieceThe Nesto Gallery welcomes artist Ani Avanian as the first exhibition of the school year. Originally from Armenia, the Boston-based artist explores technology and the human form in a variety of mediums.

“As we get further lured by the seductive designs of consumer technology, I’m fascinated to observe how the field of ergonomics and interaction design will evolve to successfully continue integrating technology into our bodies,” says Ms. Avanian. “Will the boundaries between the organic and manufactured one day be indistinguishable?”

An opening reception for Temporary Extensions is scheduled on Friday, September 21, from 6:00–8 p.m. in the lower level of the Art and Media Center. The exhibit is open weekdays, 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., until October 26. Ms. Avanian will give a talk to students on Wednesday, October 23 in Greeley Auditorium.

The Nesto Gallery opened in 1972. The gallery brings in artists from the New England area whose work enriches and broadens the School’s collective perspective. Eight exhibitions take place a year, two of which are student exhibitions. Each year one exhibition, planned on a rotating basis, includes either graduates, members of the Milton community or a local artist.
