Adam Milner

Adjunct Professor of Art




Adam Milner approaches his personal life like an anthropologist might treat another site or culture: observing, collecting, interviewing, and archiving – intimately yet somewhat distanced. The resulting archives take the form of performances, sculptures, drawings, texts, and interventions which reveal a personal vulnerability while examining broader politics of relationships and intimacy. By rooting his archival practice in longing and desire, the archives begin to point to their own subjectivity, creating blurred categories which embrace difference or queerness. Milner has exhibited at the Andy Warhol Museum, the Aspen Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Casa Maauad (Mexico City), Flux Factory (NYC), and David B. Smith Gallery (Denver). He received his MFA from Carnegie Mellon University.
