Body of Work: Nicole Miller features artist and filmmaker Nicole Miller, a world-renowned artist with roots in Tucson. The segment unfolds around Miller's creation of a bronze sculpture of Michael Jackson, using molds taken from Jackson’s actual body in the 1980s. It was poured at Metalphysic Sculpture Studio, a Tucson foundry. Through the creation of this sculpture, we look back at Miller’s previous work, which often deals with black bodies.
Miller's work has been celebrated around the world, with solo exhibitions at Marfa Ballroom, Centre D’art Contemporain Geneva, Kunst Werk Berlin, the California African American Museum, Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art, The Highline NYC, and The LA County Museum in Los Angeles. She was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship in 2018.
