Russell Lecture Featuring Isaac Julien, MCASD La Jolla
For many years, MCASD and the University of California, San Diego have partnered to bring contemporary artists to San Diego through the annual Russell Lecture program. The Russell Foundation was established in the will of Betty Russell, one of MCASD’s founding docents and a long-time supporter of UCSD. She specified that funds from the foundation should help “foster the appreciation and study of the modern visual arts and creativity of young artists” through support to the Museum and the University. This year’s Russell Lecturer is artist Isaac Julien, whose nine-screen video installation Ten Thousand Waves will be on view at MCASD Downtown.
