McConomy Auditorium

Event Navigation

Since the early 1990s, Andrea Zittel has used the arena of her day-to-day life to develop and test prototypes for living structures and situations to illuminate how we attribute significance to chosen structures or ways of life and how arbitrary any choice of structure can be. Her work has been included in major group exhibitions including the Venice Biennale, Documenta, and the Whitney Biennial, and she has had solo exhibitions at SFMOMA, Carnegie Museum of Art, New Museum, and LACMA, among others.

Robert L. Lepper Lecture in Creative Inquiry

Robert L. Lepper (1906-1991), a graduate of Carnegie Institute of Technology, was a member of the the faculty at Carnegie Mellon from 1930 to 1975. His teaching legacy includes noted artists Andy Warhol, Philip Pearlstein, and Mel Bochner. The Robert Lepper Distinguished Lecture in Creative Inquiry was made possible through a generous gift from Russell Cameron (1918-1996), a student of Lepper.
