Art|Sci Gallery, CNSI Building (5th floor)
Gallery hours: Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. (closed on campus holidays)
 
According to a review in Publishers Weekly, "Frankel and Whitesides present a game, insightful attempt to illustrate reality at the very smallest scales, where lengths are measured in billionths of a meter ... This visual and intellectual treat is best absorbed at leisure, with ample time for pondering the new relationships each topic reveals." "No Small Matter" is hosted by the UCLA Department of Design|Media Arts and the UCLA Art|Sci Center. The exhibition takes place at the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) on the UCLA campus. Parking is available in Lot 9 ($10 all-day and short-term parking payable at pay stations).

Lust is a Hague-based typography, design and propaganda studio that showcases Dutch graphic and interactive design. The studio's design philosophy revolves around process-based and generative-based design and the exploration of new pathways for design at the precarious edge where new media and information technologies, architecture and urban planning, and graphic design overlap. This program is supported, in part, by funds from the Netherlands Cultural Services.
