Please join the Friends of the ICMA for the latest in a series of special online events on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 at 12:00 pm ET (9:00 am PT; 5:00 pm GMT; and 6:00 pm CET). The hour-long program will preview three medieval exhibitions scheduled to open in 2023, each introduced by its curator in charge.
- Amanda Luyster is Assistant Professor of Art History at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. She will speak about her exhibition Bringing the Holy Land Home: The Crusades, Chertsey Abbey, and the Reconstruction of a Medieval Masterpiece. The exhibition will be on view at the Cantor Art Gallery at the College, January 26-April 6, 2023, where the Chertsey tiles will be displayed in dialogue with materials from the Byzantine and Islamic worlds.
- Gerhard Lutz is the Robert P. Bergman Curator of Medieval Art, Cleveland Museum of Art. He will introduce his upcoming exhibition, Tilman Riemenschneider’s Jerome and Late Medieval Alabaster Sculpture which will be on view from March 26-July 23, 2023. The exhibition examines this understudied material by presenting some of the most extraordinary surviving examples of alabaster work made in continental Europe, including the Cleveland’s own Saint Jerome and the Lion, the only alabaster work in a US collection by Riemenschneider.
- Christine Sciacca is Curator of European Art, 300-1400 at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore. Her exhibition, entitled, Ethiopia at the Crossroads will be on view December 3, 2023-March 3, 2024. It is the first major art exhibition in America to examine Ethiopian art in a global context. Sciacca will discuss some of the more than 250 objects drawn from the Walters’ world-renowned collection of Ethiopian art, as well as domestic and international loans. The exhibition has received the inaugural Exhibition Development grant from the ICMA and the Kress Foundation.
The panel will be introduced and moderated by Naomi Speakman, Curator of Late Medieval Europe at the British Museum where she has responsibility for the Western European collection, ca. 1050-1500. Most recently, she co-curated the 2021 exhibition Thomas Becket: Murder and the Making of a Saint and co-authored the accompanying exhibition publication.
