John Miller: I Stand, I Fall

“I Stand, I Fall” is a comprehensive survey of work by John Miller, marking the first American museum exhibition dedicated to the influential conceptual artist. The exhibition brings together some 75 works that trace Miller’s use of the figure throughout his career in order to incisively comment on the status of art and life in American culture.

The exhibition features a range of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation and video; never-before-seen works from the 1980s; new large-scale sculptures; and the artist’s most ambitious architectural installation to date: a vast and immersive mirrored labyrinth that will go on view in ICA Miami’s Atrium Gallery. “I Stand, I Fall” surveys Miller’s use of the figure in order to examine themes of citizenship and politics, and the conventions of realism in contemporary art.

John Miller (b. 1954, Cleveland, Ohio) is an artist, critic, and musician whose work has been exhibited in major museums and collections worldwide. Over the course of thirty years, Miller has produced a diverse body of work that, in addition to figuration, addresses language, valuation, social hierarchy and abjection. He currently lives in New York, where he is the Professor of Professional Practice in Art History at Barnard College, and in Berlin.
