Adam Milner: Late Night Space Force
On View October 31, 2019 – January 26, 2020
Late Night Space Force features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon’s presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon’s presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner’s investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.
