Rodney McMillian on home and history

South Carolina–born, Los Angeles–based artist Rodney McMillian discusses the making of his immersive installation In This Land, created for SFMOMA’s New Work gallery. Instead of portraying the American landscape as a pleasant or neutral tableau, he invites the viewer to consider the unseen histories in our shared land—and what a “home” really is.
