Rusell Lecture Featuring Tania Bruguera

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) and UC San Diego (UCSD) will present its annual Russell Lecture at MCASD’s La Jolla location. The 2013 Russell Lecturer is internationally acclaimed artist Tania Bruguera.

For many years, MCASD and UCSD have partnered to bring contemporary artists to the city 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. 

In addition to this public lecture, Bruguera will have a chance to meet and interact with students in UCSD’s Visual Arts Department as part of the Russell Foundation program.
