Exhibiting Medieval Spain: Yesterday and Today

Sunday, December 5
1 – 2:30 p.m.

Co-organized with The Met Cloisters in conjunction with the exhibition Spain, 1000-1200: Art at the Frontiers of Faith (running August 30 to January 30, 2022), this roundtable will feature three scholars who have deep experience curating exhibitions that engage with the multiple cultures of medieval Spain. It will be moderated by the curator of the exhibition, Julia Perratore.

The focus will be three exhibitions held in New York in the 1990s—shows that set the terms for addressing the so-called Convivencia of 11th- and 12th-century Iberia/Al-Andalus. Facets of those foundational exhibitions will be addressed in relation to contemporary issues of museology and investigations of race in the pre-modern world.
