PARIS—Novelist Umberto Eco has been named the Louvre’s latest guest curator, following in the footsteps of artist Anselm Kiefer, writer Toni Morrison, and composer Pierre Boulez. Eco will put together a series of arts events revolving around his chosen theme, “the list.” A performance art piece referencing the use of lists in major literary works by writers like Homer and James Joyce is on the agenda, as is a conference exploring the way the subjects in the work of Peter Bruegel the Elder can be seen as a kind of visual list.
