MCASD and the University of California, San Diego have long collaborated to bring internationally acclaimed artists to San Diego through the annual Russell Lecture program, established by MCASD’s and UCSD’s longtime supporter, Betty Russell. This year’s lecture features Judith Barry, an internationally recognized American artist, who is known for working across disciplines including performance, film and video, installation, and sculpture. At this lecture, she will discuss her most recent series Not Reconciled: Cairo Stories and earlier works such as Voice Off (1998–1999), on view at MCASD Downtown from November 20, 2015 through February 21, 2016. In her powerful work, Barry explores questions of subjectivity, representation, and the limits of language.

UCSD guests and MCASD Contributor level Members and above are invited to join us for a special reception preceding the lecture. Enjoy wine and beer and hors d’oeuvres by The French Gourmet. To RSVP for the reception contact 858 454 3541 x120 or email by Wednesday, October 28, 2015.
