Before forming ADULT., Miller was half of the band Le Car.

Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio. They have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan), and Centre d'art contemporain de Meymac (FR).

The summer exhibition will connect the outdoors with the inside spaces by bringing large scale artworks to the Belt Alley, as well as incorporating elements of the natural world within the interior exhibition design. This adept group of artists - each considered a strong member of the contemporary art world - are brought together to present varied perspectives on gender, race, identity, materiality, space and form.
