Seven Objects, Seven Days

Art from the Middle Ages

This exhibition presents seven spectacular medieval objects over the seven days of London Art Week's 2018 winter edition. From 1.15-1.30pm each day we will hold a fifteen minute lunchtime talk at the gallery, focusing on a new object every day. All seven objects, together encompassing the genres of metalwork, sculpture, painting, manuscript illumination and textiles, will be united by the theme of design.


Lunchtime talks:

November 30th       From Iron to Cloth: Sharing design ideas in the Middle Ages.

December 2nd        Designing Gothic Cathedrals: The birth of English gothic architecture at Canterbury.

December 3rd        Designing a Medieval Manuscript: A Book of Hours from Paris.

December 4th        Designing an Icon: How Italian religious images evolved over three centuries.

December 5th        Fashioning the Home: Lavish decoration for the domestic interior.

December 6th        Designing Marriage Gifts: Humour, romance, and private messages of two medieval wedding presents.

December 7th        Medieval Design and the Modern Age: the birth of interest in Europe's glorious past during the 19th century.
