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 Rodney McMillian as well as an interview between the artist and Heidi Zuckerman.
