Exploding traditional disciplinary boundaries, Cristin Millett’s investigations of medicine and its history are integral to her process. Her toolkit of sculptural processes incorporates new advances in digital technology along with established methods of sculpture such as stone carving and bronze casting. The resulting objects and installations prompt a contemporary cultural critique of societal issues surrounding reproduction and gender identity. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows, including at the Villa Strozzi in Florence, the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, the Exploratorium in San Francisco, and the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia. Millett is a Professor of Art in the School of Visual Arts where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in sculpture. As an Embedded Faculty Researcher in the Arts + Design Research Incubator, she collaborates with colleagues across disciplines working at the intersection of art and health.
