Public programs include individual artist talks, panels, short film screenings, and exhibition walkthroughs. Programs are organized to coincide with museum-curated exhibitions on view at Art + Practice.
Los Angeles-based artist Rodney McMillian (b. 1969) will discuss his diverse practice at Art + Practice (A+P) on September 26, 2017.
McMillian is currently on the fine arts faculty at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) as an associate professor of sculpture. He has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibition worldwide, including three museum shows in 2017 and 2016: Rodney McMillian: a great society at the Art Institute of Chicago (2017); Views of Main Street (2016) at the Studio Museum in Harlem and St. Louis Art Museum; and The Black Show (2016) at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania.
At A+P, McMillian, whose artistic practice embodies a wide range of media and techniques, will discuss how he manipulates a multitude of materials, including those found in his everyday life, to create striking sculptural works, paintings, and videos that challenge the relationships between language, aesthetics and content.
