Wardell Milan (born 1978) earned a BFA in photography and painting in 2001 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and his MFA at Yale University in 2004. Right out of school in 2005 Milan emerged and was included in institutional exhibitions such as Greater New York at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and Frequency at The Studio Museum in Harlem. Milan has continued to challenge conventions of medium and message in his deeply personal and prolific work, which has been exhibited internationally. His work has been collected by The Studio Museum in Harlem; Denver Art Museum; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College, and Art Institute of Chicago. Milan is represented by David Nolan Gallery in New York. This is Milan's first monograph covering the breadth of his studio and exhibition practice over the course of the past decade and leading into the next.
