Jenny Irene Miller: the map is not the territory

On this episode of the Portland Art Museum Podcast, we present the audio interview of Jenny Irene Miller, edited only for pauses in the conversation and chatter between Jenny Irene and the interviewer. The other voice you will hear is Grace Kook-Anderson, the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer of Northwest Art and curator of “the map is not the territory.”

Jenny Irene Miller

Jenny Irene Miller, Inupiaq, is originally from Nome, Alaska. Her family roots originate from the village of Kiŋigin, or as it is known in English, Wales, Alaska. She is a photographer who also works with video and sound art. Jenny’s art is concept-driven—packed with themes of histories, current realities, decolonization, and identities—to encourage dialogue on important topics and issues in aims to defeat stereotypes and support healing.
