Sicilia Barocca: A Theatre of Media & Materials

November 27 @ 7:00 pm

From the marble fountains and sliding paintings of Palermo’s churches, to the golden statue honouring Santa Rosalia, the masters of Sicilian baroque sculptures and church interiors were highly experimental with their media. This lecture will highlight the marmi mischi that splashed colour in stone on the walls of Palermo’s churches, creating genre-bending works between the media.

Presented by Evonne Levy, Distinguished Professor of Early Modern Art at the University of Toronto who is a specialist in the art and architecture of the Italian Baroque.
