It has been a big year for Rodney McMillian.
In a rare achievement for any artist, three
major East Coast institutions mounted
simultaneous solo exhibitions of his multimedia
works, spanning more than a decade.
At the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Institute
of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Philadelphia,
and MoMA PS1 in New York, McMillian's
shows laid bare the complexities of
racial violence and injustice in the United
States. As McMillian told Artforum, the
exhibitions presented "different modes of
engagement within my practice" across
forms, conceptual strategies, and themes-
including the class-based politics of
domesticity, the liberating construction of
identity in science fiction, and the bloodied
history of the American landscape...see the entire article in the print version of January/February's Sculpture magazine.
