Artadia Awardee

Miller Robinson (they/them) is a 2Spirit, transdisciplinary artist of Karuk, Yurok, and mixed-European descent working and residing on unceded Tongva Territory. Since receiving a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2014 they have exhibited in Los Angeles at the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Heritage Square Museum, with Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), and at HORSEANDPONY Fine Arts in Berlin amongst others.

Tethered by sensibilities that prioritize collaboration, storytelling and the passage of non-linear timelines, themes of growth, transfiguration, temporality, and stewardship are routine to their practice. They work in constant dialogue with the state of materials and experiences, informed by a lineage of basket weavers and fix-the-earth People. Through performance, sculpture, and books, they incorporate poetry, tattooing, garment-making and site-specific installation to create detailed ecosystems within exhibitions that seek out horizons in Queer and Trans potentialities.
