Open for Discussion

Come together to view Rodney McMillian’s timely exhibition Against a Civic Death, then take part in a conversation about art, politics, and race.

You need not be an expert; just come curious to learn from each other and share your own perspective. Arrive at 6:30P and check out the art on your own (Rodney McMillian’s 18-minute-long work of video art, Untitled (neighbors), begins at approximately 6:40P) and then gather with the group for the informal discussion at 7P.

May’s discussion will be led by Benjamin Yiapan, a first-generation American born in Austin, a full-time student pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in English for Authors, and a member of Black Lives Matter Austin leadership.
