John Miller

John Miller is a Conceptual artist from the generation of fellow Cal Arts graduates Jim Shaw, Mike Kelley, and Tony Oursler—artists inspired by a corrupted pop-cultural aesthetic. Miller is best known for his "John Miller brown" sculptures, painted with a thick layer of fecal brown, and for his more recent assemblages of trash and junk covered in gold leaf. His work is informed by ideas of authenticity and falsity.

Miller lives in Berlin and New York, where he teaches at Columbia University. His work was included in the 1985 and 1991 Whitney Biennials, and he has had solo exhibitions at Metro Pictures in New York, Tokyo's Center for Contemporary Art, and MoMA PS1.
