Please join us for a free day-long symposium to celebrate A Portrait of Venice, a multi-media exhibition that brings to life the city of Venice through Jacopo de’ Barbari’s iconic View, part of The Collection Galleries at the Nasher Museum. For the first time, this exhibition animates the View of Venice with interactive displays that tell the stories of one of the wealthiest, most powerful, and greatly admired cities in the early modern world. The exhibition is curated by Kristin L. Huffman, instructor of art history in Duke’s Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies. The project, part of the Visualizing Venice initiative, is the result of multi-disciplinary and collaborative research developed over three years in the Wired! Lab at Duke.
Opening remarks by Nasher Museum Director Sarah Schroth and introduction by Kristin L. Huffman (Duke University). Symposium speakers include: Rachel McGarry (Minneapolis Institute of Art), “Locating the View of Venice in the Mysterious Life and Work of Jacopo de’ Barbari”; Rangsook Yoon (Independent Scholar), “Jacopo de’ Barbari, a Wandering Court Artist in the North: Changing Perspectives on His Role in Northern Renaissance Art”; Giorgio Tagliaferro (University of Warwick), “The Address Book of a 1500’s Venetian Painter: Preliminary Remarks for a Possible Study on the City’s Artistic Geography”; Ludovica Galeazzo (Duke University), “The Venetian Imago Urbis: Urban Dynamics in Jacopo de’ Barbari’s View”; Blake de Maria (Santa Clara University), “Luxury Goods in Jacopo de’ Barbari’s Venice”; Saundra Weddle (Drury University), “The de’ Barbari View and Urban Patterns: Venetian Convents at the Turn of the Sixteenth Century”; Holly Hurlburt (Southern Illinois University), “Gendered Political Spaces and the de’ Barbari View”; Anna Swartwood House (University of South Carolina), “Beyond Venice: at the Margins of Jacopo de’ Barbari’s View.”
