VFF: Digital Visualizations of an Early Modern Portrait of Venice

Friday, March 31, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This talk will present a Wired! research project, A Portrait of Venice: Jacopo de' Barbari's View of 1500, an exhibition to open at the Nasher Museum of Art in September. The exhibition will bring the Early Modern city of Venice to life through the display of a number of thematically coordinated digital engagements alongside the original work of art from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The mural-sized woodblock print, published in Venice in 1500, was instantly recognized as a groundbreaking marvel as well as an artistic masterpiece. Combining traditional art historical research with visualization technologies has resulted in new insights into this important historical document and opened up possibilities for further, scholarly study. NOTE: This talk will *not* be recorded or streamed.
