Nicole Miller

About this Artist

Known for her work in video and installation, Nicole Miller was born in 1982 in Tucson, Arizona, and relocated to Los Angeles in 2001 to attend Calarts, continuing her education with a graduate degree from USC Roski School of the Arts.

Central to Miller’s approach are themes of subjectivity and self-representation, and it is through acts of re-editing or mapping that Miller locates in her subjects “a potential solace, perhaps to reach an understanding, hence, agency.” Thus, in Miller’s hands, film transforms into a powerful storytelling tool wielded for the possible reconstitution of lost histories and identities.

Miller has held exhibitions in many international institutions such as: SFMOMA, Ballroom Marfa, Centre D’art Contemporain Geneva, The Highline NYC, and Kunst Werke in Berlin.

ADDITIONAL EXHIBITIONS: LAXART, The Hammer Museum’s “Made in LA”, “Fore” at The Studio Museum in Harlem, Sharjah Design Biennial, MAC Lyon, Astrup Fearnley, and the reopening exhibition of SFMOMA.

Miller’s recent work includes the SFMOMA commission “To the Stars.”

Nicole Miller was a Rome prize recipient and also awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2018. She currently holds the position of assistant professor in the department of visual arts at the University of California, San Diego. Miller’s work may be found within museum collections including those of LACMA, The Hammer Museum and SFMOMA.
