Nicole Miller
Series - In Plain Sight Film Series [Online]

** Presented in partnership with SFMOMA **

Ad astra per aspera, or to the stars with great difficulty, is the thesis driving artist Nicole Millers exploration of identity, voice, pain, and possibility.

To create this work, Miller filmed interviews, performance rehearsals, and behind-the-scenes moments with prominent figures of color in the arts and sciences, including choreographer Alonzo King and the LINES ballet company, opera singer JNai Bridges, violinist Jessica McJunkins, and NASA astronaut Yvonne Cagle, as well as students in Bay Area schools. Miller is a conceptual artist known for her inventive uses of video, often incorporating documentary-style methods into evocative mixed-media installations that deal with self-representation and the experience of looking. Commissioned by SFMOMA, Miller intended this new work for the museums Phyllis Wattis Theater; in installation form, the work combines video and sound elements with a dynamic laser-light display.

Two of Millers earlier installation works, For Now and Athens, California, are part of the Henry Art Gallerys In Plain Sight exhibition.
