Tuesday, February 25, 7:30 pm
Room 410, 808 Commonwealth Ave.
Part of the Tuesday Night MFA Lecture Series at Boston University School of Visual Arts.
Adam Milner draws from personal and historical archives to create highly poetic sculptures and assemblages. His practice draws upon personal exchanges with people, things, and institutions to examine systems of intimacy, value, and power. Approaching materials and spaces that are often off limits, his work reveals boundaries and involve a process of negotiation and exchange. He has performed aboard a cruise ship hosted by the app Grindr, collaborated with material engineers at NASA to use rare lunar regolith simulant, intervened in the archives of Andy Warhol, and routinely drawn his boyfriend’s blood.
Milner lives and works in Brooklyn. He received an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University, is a recent participant of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and is a fellow with Black Cube Nomadic Museum. Milner has exhibited at the Mattress Factory, The Andy Warhol Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Aspen Art Museum, Casa Maauad, Galería Mascota, Flux Factory, Florian Christopher Zurich, Mindy Solomon Gallery and David B. Smith Gallery.
