The University of Mississippi Museum presents "An Evening with Robert Storr and Bruce Levingston" from 7 to 8 this evening at Nutt Auditorium on the University of Mississippi campus.
Storr, artist and critic, is dean of the Yale School of Art. He was director of the Venice Biennale in 2007, and from 1990 to 2002 was curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art.
Levingston is the artistic director of the Premiere Commission, a nonprofit foundation that has commissioned and premiered over 30 new works. He has premiered numerous works at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center and has appeared in concerts and recitals throughout the world.
For this evening, Storr will lecture on developments in modern art, including the work of Eugene Delacroix, Edgar Degas, Jackson Pollock, Sol LeWitt and Chuck Close, while Levingston will respond with performances of compositions from Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, John Cage and Philip Glass. A question-and-answer session will follow.
