Milton Lim is a Vancouver-based artist. His work is engaged with global politics, the cataloguing/archiving/indexing of public data, and resource allocation. These thematic interests are bolstered by a continued interest in game mechanics, typography architecture, and high-frequency content. He holds a BFA (Hons.) in theatre performance from Simon Fraser University.

He has created works for and performed in various international festivals and venues including PuSh International Performing Arts Festival (Vancouver), CanAsian Dance Festival (Toronto), Carrefour international de théâtre festival (Quebec City), IMPACT Festival (Kitchener), Seattle International Dance Festival, Risk/Reward Festival (Portland), artsdepot (London), Battersea Arts Centre (London), New Theatre Royal (Portsmouth), Strike a Light Festival (Gloucester), and Australia’s Darwin Festival.

Milton's video media works have been presented at the Vancouver Art Gallery, San Francisco State University, and VIVO Media Arts Centre.

Recent performance credits include Gateway Theatre’s King of the Yees at Canada's National Arts Centre and Theatre Conspiracy’s award-winning immersive show: Foreign Radical at CanadaHub (Edinburgh Fringe).

In 2016 he was awarded the Ray Michal Prize for Outstanding Body of Work at the Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards.

He is Co-Artistic Director of Hong Kong Exile, Co-Director of Gold Saucer Studio, and an Artistic Associate with Theatre Conspiracy. Milton is the recent Artist-in-Residence with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival (2016 - 2018).
