John Miller

“The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami presents “I Stand, I Fall,” a comprehensive survey of work by John Miller, marking the first American museum exhibition dedicated to the influential conceptual artist. I Stand, I Fall 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 in ICA Miami’s Atrium Gallery.”

Office GA worked closely with John Miller and chief curator Alex Gartenfeld to realize this immersive architectural experience. The final design was realized through strategic prefabrication of components that allowed for an expedited installation in just over a week. Throughout the design phase Office GA worked to develop a system that could be finely crafted on site to meet the tight installation timeline laid out by the museum and the demand for seamless finishing and details. The final product delivers on the artist’s concept while creating a space both immersive and sublimely beautiful.
