Asher Milgate’s practice responds to the historic ‘Australian’ identity and its dual history. Drawing from dual histories, Milgate discusses the intersection of colonisation and the ongoing challenges for Aboriginal people as a result. Milgate’s work is a transferal of history of lived experiences echoed through photography, video, installation and sound recordings. Milgate seeks to engage the public’s interest in the breath of the ‘Australian’ landscape, through diversity, similarity and dual perspectives.
Asher Milgate has exhibited in multiple solo and group shows in Sydney, Newcastle and regional NSW including a solo exhibition at the Western Plain Cultural Centre, Dubbo in 2015. He had received numerous awards and his work is in the collection of Orange Regional Museum.
