The Warburg Institute invites you to a special Curatorial Conversation with curator and art historian, Jean Clair and science historian, Laura Bossi Régnier, on their current exhibition, Inferno, at the Scuderie del Quirinale, Rome (until 9 January 2022). Inferno investigates the infernal universe, its landscapes and its inhabitants, marking the seventh centenary of the death of Dante.
This event will immediately precede our regular 6.30pm Monday evening meeting, From Devilry to Divinity: Readings in the Divina Commedia, with Alessandro Scafi (Warburg), John Took (UCL) and Tabitha Tuckett (UCL Special Collections).
You are very welcome to attend one or both events via the same zoom link.
Curatorial Conversations bring to the Warburg curators of world-leading museums and galleries to discuss their work. The conversations, led by academics at the Warburg Institute, discuss the issues of setting the curatorial agenda and staging meaningful encounters with objects. The series is designed to draw out discussion of the discoveries made, challenges tackled and the lessons learned in installing objects in the permanent collection and putting together internationally renowned exhibitions.
