Pac Pobric of The Art Newspaper interviews Rodney McMillian about his three retrospective exhibitions, including “The Black Show” at the Institute of Contemporary Art. McMillian tells The Art Newspaper:

“If there is a through-line in regards to the three shows, it’s about how much you can see history in action. A lot of the work is also about how we understand political texts. The ICA show looks at blackness as a colour, a form, a construct and as something that is projected. At the Studio Museum, the work looks at the politics of our homes and how those politics are formed. The show at PS1 looks at landscape painting through the history of Modernism in America and through the Hudson River School.”
