Mario Moore: Responding to History
Mario Moore is known for his thought-provoking paintings that respond to history’s more problematic moments through a contemporary lens. In a new exhibition at the LSU Museum of Art, Mario Moore: Responding to History, Moore’s five-by-six-foot collaborative painting with Mark Gibson, During and After Battle—which responds to American classical painting traditions and the Civil War— will be featured prominently. Also included in the exhibition is Gibson’s Battle of Anteitam, which provides another glimpse into Moore’s inspiration for During and After Battle. A reception will be held Thursday, August 18 in conjunction with a Gallery Talk with LSU MOA Curatorial Fellow Clarke Brown at 6:45 pm. lsumoa.org.
