Nicole Miller: Conductors, Mirrors, and Time
Cornell in Rome Fall 2016 Lecture Series
Nicole Miller was born in 1982 in Tucson, Arizona, moved to Los Angeles in 2001 to attend CalArts, and then continued with a graduate degree from the University of Southern California Roski School of the Arts. Central to Miller's approach are notions of subjectivity and self-representation, especially in relation to the African-American male body. Through acts of re-editing or mapping, Miller locates in her subjects "a potential solace, perhaps to reach an understanding, hence, agency."
Miller has had solo exhibitions at Ballroom Marfa in Marfa, Texas; Centre D'art Contemporain, Geneva; The Highline, New York City; and Kunst-Werke, Berlin. She has also shown at LAXART in Los Angeles and been featured in major museum exhibitions such as the Hammer Museum's Made in LA, Fore at the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Dallas Biennale at Dallas Contemporary, and the recent reopening exhibition of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). Her work is included in many museum collections including those of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Hammer Museum, and SFMOMA.
