Thursday, Nov 17 // 7-9PM

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 longtime MCASD and UCSD supporter Betty Russell, this year's lecture will feature Los Angeles based artist Andrea Bowers, whose socially charged work takes form as drawings, installations, videos, and social practice, often engaging ideas surrounding non-violent civil disobedience, feminism, and activist histories. In One Big Union, 2012 Bowers reconfigures historical imagery drawn from labor movements of the early 20th century to illuminate activities related to Occupy and other recent movements. Learn more about Bowers's radical practice at this highly anticipated lecture.

The lecture is free for MCASD Members and UCSD students and faculty, $5 non-UCSD students, and $15 general admission.

USCD guests and MCASD Contributor level Members and above are invited to attend a special reception preceding the lecture from 6-7 PM. Please RSVP to 858 454 3541 x120 or email RSVP@mcasd.org.
