Dan Miller is an Australian artist living in Chicago. His wide-ranging practice has employed a diverse range of media including readymade sculpture, garments, painting, performance, video, sound installation, and fiction writing. These material outcomes sit alongside a series of horizontal collaborations between artists, thinkers, writers and other creative practitioners that often take place outside traditional art contexts. Among other projects, he has worked since 2014 in an experimental collaboration with the convenience store owner and artist Thomas Kong in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood. With Kong and Nathan Abhalter Smith, Miller coordinated The Back Room at Kim’s Corner Food from 2015–2019, a project space and artwork repository housed in an adapted stockroom behind Kong’s store. The Back Room was awarded a Propeller Fund grant in 2017, and was a central subject of Miller’s publication At Work With Thomas Kong (Half Letter Press, 2017).
