Los Angeles-based artist Rodney McMillian (Post-Bac 2000) explores the complex and fraught connections between history and contemporary culture, not only as they are expressed in American politics, but also as they are manifest in American modernist art traditions. Aspects of his work negotiate between the body of a political nature and the politic of a bodily nature.
Presented in partnership with SAIC’s Office of Alumni Relations
