Desmond A. Miller
March 7 – April 26, 2020
Aesthetics of the Archives explores the Caribbean and European ancestry of Canadian Artist/Researcher Desmond A. Miller. Through a focus on his paternal family’s location within the Black Diaspora, Miller draws on personal, family and institutional archives to create representations of family elders. In Aesthetics of the Archives, he uses poetry, photography, and textiles to disrupt linear ideas of time, trouble fixed notions of archives and invite pathways for being in good relation with the other-than-human world.
Desmond A. Miller is a recipient of the John Willard Fibre Arts Residency at the Art Gallery of Burlington.
