Gregory Allicar Museum of Art, University Center for the Arts

In conjunction with the exhibition Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art, museum director and curator of the exhibition, Dr. Lynn Boland, will present a lecture on the relationship of art and music during the advent of total abstraction in Europe in the early twentieth century. Focusing on the artist Wassily Kandinsky’s use of the musical theories of composer Arnold Schoenberg, Boland will also illuminate the moment’s larger context and the shared connections between music and art of the era within the spheres of science, philosophy, and the occult.
