GENTLERIDEVAN is the website of Andrea Grover, curator, artist and writer. In 1998, she founded Aurora Picture Show, a now recognized center for filmic art, that began in Grover’s living room as “the world’s most public home theater.” She curated the first exhibition exploring the phenomenon of crowdsourcing in art (PHANTOM CAPTAIN, apexart, New York, 2006), and, with artist Jon Rubin, organized an exhibit in which worldwide participants created a photo-sharing album of their imaginings on Tehran (NEVER BEEN TO TEHRAN, Parkinggallery, Tehran, Iran, 2008). As a consultant to Buffalo Bayou Partnership, Houston, she conceptualized and inaugurated the ongoing public art project, CONFLUENCE: POINTS OF VIEW ON BUFFALO BAYOU. She programmed an evening of films for Dia Art Foundation at The Hispanic Society of America, New York (LESSONS IN THE SKY, 2009); and inaugurated a new semi-annual screening series, MENIL MOVIES, with The Menil Collection. In Fall 2009 she curated 29 CHAINS TO THE MOON, an exhibition for Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery, which continued her research into cooperation and distributed thinking across disciplines. She was a 2010 Warhol Curatorial Fellow at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and Miller Gallery, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA. During this time, she lead a seven-day “book sprint” (with collaborators Claire Evans, Régine Debatty, Pablo Garcia and Thumb), the outcome of which is the 2011 publication, New Art/Science Affinities. A related exhibition titled “INTIMATE SCIENCE” opened at Miller Gallery in January 2012, and will tour to Southern Exposure, San Francisco, and Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT. Grover has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a BFA from Syracuse University and was a Core Fellow in residence at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She is presently Curator of Special Projects at Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York.
