”Static, dusting, boring…have you ever heard these words used to describe a museum? What about mobile, moving, mind-blowing…join Andrew Milne at the Kings County Museum in Kentville on September 22nd to turn old ideas of “what a museum is” into a journey through and discovery of his “Museum of New Ideas” on wheels. You’ll discover an uncommon artist and the way in which he is seeking to transform your way of viewing museums and the world.
Andrew John Milne is an Interdiciplinary Artist working in the Media Arts, Film and Video, Photography and Performance. He is based out of Winnipeg Manitoba although can increasingly be found traveling throughout Canada in the Museum of New Ideas. He has a background in contemporary dance, photography and film as well as mechanical, electrical and computer design. Andrew creates Post-Cinematic Mechanisms which interrogate the technologies of seeing. In this work he approaches emergent media processes with obsolesced technique creating mechanical ruins, decaying monuments that realize future utopias, dragging them backwards toward obsolescence, futility and critique.

Andrew is the founder of the Museum of New Ideas, a mobile media art exhibition and studio space, and is a founding member of Bent Light a post-cinema film collective.
