Kim Miller moves across the fields of video and performance, exploring ideas around action, power, and agency. Employing forms borrowed from performance art, dance, theater and film, questions are structured around a radical democratic model. Is a radical democratic subject possible? How does gesture inform or complicate a subject?
Miller received her BFA from Cooper Union in New York City and her MFA from Vermont College. She has performed live and shown video at Anthology Film Archive (New York), The Suburban (Oak Park), Green Gallery (Milwaukee), MOMA (New York), MASS MoCA (North Adams), and Art in General (New York). She has received a Mary L. Nohl Individual Artist Fellowship, a Puffin Foundation Ltd. Grant, was Artist-in-residence at Compeung (Doi Saket, Thailand) and Lynden Sculpture Garden (Milwaukee).
