Virtual Lecture: 'Revelations'

2.00PM Wed 9 Sep 2020
VIRTUAL | Ticketed

Delve deeper into QAGOMA exhibitions and displays at this virtual event for Members!

In September, join Sophie Rose (Assistant Curator, International Art) for an in-depth discussion of printmaking in the Northern Renaissance and the continued importance of Albrecht Durer’s 1498 ‘Apocalypse’ series, on display from September as part of 'Revelations' in the Queensland Art Gallery.

Durer’s time was one of chaos, with the recent fall of Constantinople to Ottoman rule in 1453 and, closer to home, simmering religious discontent that would soon erupt with the Protestant Reformation. Our current moment is equally fraught, as we face the effects a warming planet, riots and pandemic outbreaks. Today, these iconic depictions catastrophic reckoning may feel more pertinent than ever.
