Rodney McMillian: Landscape Paintings


This monograph, published on the occasion of the Aspen Art Museum exhibition of Rodney McMillian, showcases a comprehensive survey of the artist’s paintings, a section of his practice also encompassing sculpture, installation, and performance. Incorporating and challenging the notion of art as social and historical critique, the works, essays, and interview in this publication examine issues of race, identity, and commerce in contemporary society. The book contains images of almost every painting produced by McMillian since, and including, his graduate thesis exhibition, demonstrating a fuller comprehension of the impetus of his work and an insight into the development of the artist’s practice. It also features texts by Thomas Lax and McMillian as well as an interview between the artist and Heidi Zuckerman.
