Material worlds from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment

Join scholars, curators and conservators for this day long event inspired by objects that once lay close to their owner’s hearts.  Learn about the historical context of the exhibition, and the opportunity it provided for collaboration between curators, academics and makers.  Key speakers include Peter Burke, Ludmilla Jordanova, Giorgio Riello and Evelyn Welch.

The day closes with an early evening private view of the exhibition and drinks reception.
