A Portrait of Venice

Kristin Huffman

This innovative exhibition opens at Duke’s Nasher Museum of Art in September 2017. Jacopo De’ Barbari’s patented image, a meticulous portrait of Venice in 1500, is the gateway to a world of knowledge. Along with the mural-sized, first state print from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the exhibition features a number of interactive digital engagements that bring the city to life. Multi-media visualizations of the print’s art historical and historical material have led to exciting discoveries and invaluable understandings, information to be shared with the public for the first time. The result will be an original, highly dynamic, and multi-sensory way of experiencing art and its history.
