Jill Miller

Former Fellows

Jill Miller‘s recent work, including The Milk Truck, positions itself between public and private, teasing out the fear and excitement we feel when presented with images we are not supposed to see. Miller acts as provocateur, undercover agent, and iconoclast. Her work reveals secrets and curiosities, both institutional and individual, to challenge issues of ownership, identity and status quo. She presents her work with humor, curiosity and often reverence, recontextualizing objects, images and processes in order to look deeper within them. Born in Illinois, she received her MFA in from UCLA and her BA from UC.Berkeley, in English. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, and collected in public institutions worldwide including CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in Madrid and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. She has taught at California College of the Arts, San Francisco Art Institute and Carnegie Mellon University.
