Exposures artist Adam Milner discusses his installation Remains with Jessica Beck, The Warhol’s associate curator of art. Milner’s installation juxtaposes found mementos and detritus from our daily lives alongside unusual objects mined from the permanent collection. Displayed in archival vitrines, Milner’s work highlights the seemingly arbitrary nature of Warhol’s collecting habits and the challenges and failures of the archive to accurately represent the life of the artist. Milner discusses the development of his practice and his work in various media including paintings, drawings, and archival installations.
Remains is on view on the museum’s third floor near the archives collection from November 2, 2016–January 15, 2017.
