Inspired by Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road, this exhibition investigated the sociopolitical power associated with cultural, racial, and economic issues. Through discarded pieces of furniture, historical ephemera, and abstract gestural paintings, Rodney McMillian created a memorial space that questioned the construction of history and the identities of its makers. The process of remembering and praising the often-ignored anonymous individuals and their actions resonates with the inequalities that still characterize our reality. This show included a sound piece by Stefan Tcherepnin, which accompanied choreography by Taisha Paggett, in a performance at the exhibition opening. This show was curated by Rashida Bumbray.
