Weston Teruya welcomes artists, arts administrators, and cultural workers of color to get real about their lives, practices, and careers. Each episode is an in-depth look into how art gets made, but more importantly how these folks are seeing to the system of art’s (UN)making.
In this episode of the podcast, we talk with artist, educator, and cultural organizer Gabby Miller. Gabby’s work often utilizes remnants from the global transportation of goods--including the corrugated sides of steel shipping containers and crude oil--to examine imperialism, climate change, war, family history, and the movement of capital and people. In her recent projects, she also occasionally juxtaposes this evidence of the international supply chain with spaces for contemplation and communal exchange, whether room for meditation or a shared gallery on a cargo ship. We discuss how she started creating work in Hanoi with the Nha San Collective, climate change, and how meditative practice intersects with her deconstruction of global capitalism.
