Nicole Miller is an artist working mainly with video, she lives and works in Southern California. Miller’s work stems from the possibility representation allows for reconstitution. Using video installation and sculpture, Miller proposes that active viewing can be used as a tool to reconstitute personal histories, or even one's own body.
Miller has had solo exhibitions in several institutions including, Marfa Ballroom, Centre D’art Contemporain Geneva, Kunst Werk Berlin, and the California African American Museum. Nicole also has been included in many group shows and Biennials, at places such as The Studio Museum in Harlem, The LA Biennial at the Hammer museum, Musée d'art contemporain de Lyon, and The San Francisco Museum of Art. Miller has won prizes such as the Rome prize, the Guggenheim, The William H Johnson Prize, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany prize. Her work is in the collections of the LA County Museum, the Hammer Museum, and SFMOMA amongst other institutions.
