On view until January 7, 2023 at Petzel’s new Chelsea location at 520 West 25th Street, Regarding Violence, is an exhibition of recent works by Los Angeles-based artist Rodney McMillian. McMillian’s mixed-genre practice activates objects and texts from the past to locate their reverberating effects on the present. Spanning the two largest rooms, McMillian’s second exhibition at Petzel reflects the artist’s ongoing interest in teasing apart the political conditions that continue to enable systems of inequity.

Rodney McMillian reads from “The Pitfalls of Liberalism” (1969) by Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) in the video “Preacher Man II” (2017–2021), used with permission from the Kwame Ture Foundation.
