Rodney McMillian has a complex artistic practice that embraces a wide range of media to investigate social history and culture. He uses conceptual art strategies and applies them to painting to explore its relationship to language and content and its role as an artwork. His installations often incorporate various media, including video, assemblage, sculpture, and painting. In more recent video performances he reveals his intense interest in history and how past events relate to the contemporary political situation.
