YUAG: E-Conversation, Conservation Colleagues in Dialogue @ Yale University Art Gallery
Dec 7 @ 12:30 pm

Join Anne Turner Gunnison, the Alan J. Dworsky Senior Associate Conservator of Objects, and Cathy Silverman, Assistant Conservator of Objects and Furniture, in a discussion about object conservation with colleagues from the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM), Abuja, Nigeria. The exhibition Bámigbóyè: A Master Sculptor of the Yorùbá Tradition, which closes on January 8, includes many loans from the National Museum, Lagos, in a variety of media. The safe transit of these works, never before exhibited outside of Nigeria, required collaboration between conservators in Nigeria and United States. This partnership—which included a workshop in wood conservation attended by conservators from NCMM museums across Nigeria—will endure long after the exhibition has closed. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.

Closed captions will be available in English.

FUAM: Exhibition Tour: Out of the Kress Vaults with exhibition curator @ Bellarmine Hall, Bellarmine Hall Galleries
Dec 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join us for the last FREE exhibition tour for Out of the Kress Vaults, on view through December 17, 2022!

 

Join us in the Bellarmine Hall Galleries for a special tour with Michelle DiMarzo, PhD, curator of Out of the Kress Vaults: Women in Sacred Renaissance Painting.

Please note: This event is in-person only. Space is limited to 15 registrants.

 

About Out of the Kress Vaults: The exhibition explores representations of femininity and virtue in Italian Renaissance paintings of the Virgin Mary, female saints, and nuns. This exhibition is the first in the museum’s history to be co-curated with Fairfield University students. Taking inspiration from two paintings of the Madonna and Child in the museum’s own Samuel H. Kress Collection, students in Dr. Michelle DiMarzo’s art history seminar developed the exhibition by examining Kress collections at other institutions, with an emphasis on works typically held in storage.
