Allen Memorial Art Museum: Religion, Ritual, and Performance in the Renaissance
The Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM) is presenting several important exhibitions during the 2012-2013 academic year based on the theme of “Religion, Ritual, and Performance.”
This academic yearlong exhibition includes more than 30 works—sacred and secular, from both Northern and Southern Europe, and dating from the late 13th to early 17th c.—on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery. These works will be hung alongside stellar examples of Renaissance art from the AMAM permanent collection. The exhibition is made possible by generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, as part of a collection-sharing initiative.
Visitors to the AMAM will find these and other artworks in the following galleries:
- The Nord Gallery: Renaissance Art
- The Willard-Newell Gallery: 17th and 18th Century Art
- The Hazel B. King Sculpture Court: 19th Century Art
- Ambulatory Gallery: Ancient Near Eastern, Egyptian, Islamic, Greek & Roman, and Asian Art; Recent Acquisitions
