THE BODY OF THE MERCHANT: ART AND EXPERIENCE IN THE COMMERCIAL REVOLUTION
Ittai Weinryb, Bard Graduate Center
Wednesday, September 29th, 12:30pm ET
[Webinar] Silsila Fall 2021 Lecture Series
From the early thirteenth century traders from Italian mercantile families started travelling eastward, to the European frontiers, to areas such as Crimea in the northern Black Sea region, where commercial outposts served as markets for trading goods with Eurasia and beyond. The lecture centers on the experience of those traders, focusing on metalwork and the way it shaped discourse regarding art, heritage, and the indigenous, both in the European frontiers and “back home” in Italy’s domestic spaces.
