Experience an immersive evening of music and art at this Art Week 2021 capstone event. Composed in 1874 and orchestrated by Maurice Ravel in 1922, Pictures at an Exhibition was inspired by a posthumous show of more than 400 paintings and drawings by Modest Mussorgsky’s close friend, architect, and artist Viktor Hartmann, who died in 1873.
In this dynamic presentation, each of the work’s ten movements and five “promenades” will be paired with projected images created by leading contemporary artists (Doug Argue, Omar Ba, María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Claudia DeMonte, Juan Roberto Diago, Michele Oka Doner, Carlos Estévez, Karen LaMonte, Yassi Mazandi, Ed McGowin, Gladys Nilsson, Virgil Ortiz, Carlos Quintana, Alexis Rockman, Arthur Simms, and Agnieszka Traczewska) as well as key works from the Lowe’s permanent collection.
The evening also includes music by Aaron Copland, Julia Perry, and others.

“This collaboration highlights not only two of the jewels in the University of Miami's arts crown, but it is also a forceful reminder of the capacity of music and the painted image to ground us, to move us, and to bring us closer to ourselves and to one another. The words of the British philosopher and writer Roger Scurton are fitting here: ‘Art and music shine a light of meaning on ordinary life, and through them, we are able to confront the things that trouble us and to find consolation and peace in their presence,’” says Jill Deupi, Beaux-Arts director and chief curator at the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami.
