Awaiting the Miraculous Mandarin

“Awaiting the Miraculous Mandarin” (Tom Wudl, 1999)

The UCLA Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center on campus — our “home” this weekend — showcases some exceptional artwork from alumni, professors and students, some of whom are now famous.

This one was inspired by the one act, pantomime ballet that Béla Bartók composed. Wudl was a lecturer and a graduate student advisor at the UCLA Department of Art in the ’70s.

“Wudl’s work creates a realm where he explores the sense of mastery involved in composition — Bartók’s composition, the mastery of an instrument, and that of artistic composition representing by a modern painting, reminiscent of the work of Gottlieb, hanging on the wall of he room.”
