Renaissance Remix: Art and Imagination in 16th-Century Europe
Venue(s)
Memorial Art Gallery of The University of Rochester 2012-07 through 2016-07
See the world of the Renaissance through the eyes of a young boy growing up in mid 16th-century Europe—a time of political, cultural, religious and social change. Imagine that your world has been transformed by the invention of the printing press, the “discovery” of the New World, and a widespread explosion of intellectual and artistic energy. At the center of this long-term installation is MAG’s much-loved Portrait of a Boy of the Bracciforte Family, but it also showcases 30 other works from the Gallery’s collection, the Metropolitan Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass. Hands-on activities, videos, touch screen displays and listening posts explore the Renaissance “spirit of change” through five major themes—portraiture, arms and armor, music, worldly goods, and the power of the press.
