Millie Wilson (born 1948 in Hot Springs, Arkansas) is an artist and teacher who lives and works in Austin, TX. Wilson was a member of the faculty in the Program in Art at The California Institute of the Arts: 1985 - 2014.
Wilson graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 1971 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and later attended the University of Houston, graduating with a Masters of Fine Arts in 1983. Wilson's works incorporate a variety of media and are "characterized by (a) shrewd appropriation and tweaking of high- and low- cultural icons to create lesbian subtexts."
Wilson’s artwork is characterized by incorporating Modernist and Minimalist traditions, while disrupting the purity of these genres with issues of sexuality and gender identity. She describes her works as “unfinished inventories of fragments, improvisational sites where the constructed and the readymade are used to question our making of the world through systems of language, knowledge, things and information”.
