The lecture will take place at the Price Center Theatre, UC San Diego. This program is free for MCASD Members and UC San Diego faculty, staff, and students; $5 for other students and seniors; and $15 for non-members.  

About the artist: Shizu Saldamando is a Los Angeles based mixed-media artist originally from San Francisco’s Mission district. Primarily concerned with portraiture, craft and drawing, she experiments with a broad range of surfaces and materials from wood panels to bed sheets. Saldamando’s practice employs tattooing, video, painting and drawing on canvas, wood, paper, and cloth, and functions as celebration, and homage to peers and loved ones. Her mother’s family is Japanese American, by way of Boyle Heights/Sawtelle areas of L.A., and survivors of the Japanese American Internment camps. Her father is Chicano (Mexican American) from Nogales, AZ. She received her B.A. from UCLA School of Art and her M.F.A. from California Institute of the Arts.

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 for the Museum and the University. Past Russell Lecture speakers have included June Edmonds (2021), Njideka Akunyili Crosby (2020), Rodney McMillian (2019), Zackary Drucker (2018), Miguel Calderón (2017), Andrea Bowers (2016), Judith Barry (2015), Tacita Dean (2014), Byron Kim (2013), Tania Bruguera (2012), and Isaac Julien (2011).
