Kara Walker: Shadow Caster

Robert Storr will explore Walker’s work through the symbolism of the shadow, drawing on historic and metaphoric connections. A critic, curator, painter, and academic, Robert Storr is considered one of the most influential Americans in the art world. He served as senior curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1990 to 2002, became the first American selected as commissioner of the Venice Biennale in 2007, and is currently the dean of Yale University’s School of Art.

The lecture is held in conjunction with the exhibition at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Emancipating the Past: Kara Walker’s Tales of Slavery and Power. Visit jsma.uoregon.edu/KaraWalker

This lecture is sponsored by the Department of Art, the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and Academic Affairs and is made possible by the George and Matilda Fowler Endowment Fund.
