MCASD and the University of California, San Diego have long collaborated to bring internationally acclaimed artists to San Diego through the annual Russell Lecture program. This year’s lecture features Rodney McMillian. McMillian is a Los Angeles-based artist with a wide-ranging conceptual practice. From video and painting to installation and performance, McMillian’s artworks question the political systems that promise equality for all and highlight the power of the individual as an agent of change.

McMillian’s work is in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, UCLA Hammer Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, among others.

This program is free for Members and UC San Diego faculty, staff, and students; $5 for other students and seniors; and $15 for non-members. Students may email education@mcasd.org to request the promo code for free tickets.
