SHALA MILLER

Heat Situated/Necessary Accessories

Thursday, August 31 at 8 PM, $7-10

The Nightingale presents Heat Situated/Necessary Accessories: new video works and poetry by Shala Miller. Her work primarily consists of photography, text, video and drawing from time to time. Language and conversation serve as the thematic umbrella for Shala’s work. Whether it’s the language of a photograph and it’s poetic capabilities or the conversation between the soprano and alto.

Originally from Cleveland, OH, Shala is a recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and she is soon to be a New Yorker.
