It was a little strange getting together with Shala Miller in the same space we’d met in less than a year ago. It was Farah Al Qasimi’s opening at Helena Anrather’s gallery, and the room was packed. This time, we were in the same space, but it was filled with Shala’s things instead - stuff for her to work on and during residency she was doing at the gallery. The room had different workstations that were set up, which made sense to me given Shala’s practice. She is a multi-disciplinary artist working with photography, film and music, which she makes under the name Freddie June. As I’ve gotten more and more into her work, I’ve discovered that It’s the tapestry of it all that makes it so compelling and rich. Shala is a native of Cleveland, Ohio, studied at SAIC in Chicago and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris before pursuing her MFA at Bard. She currently lives and works in New York.
