In addition to illuminated manuscripts and bestiaries, we’ll have a look at Sandro Botticelli’s drawings for Dante’s Divine Comedy, Henri Matisse’s Florilège Des Amours De Ronsard, Salvador Dali’s Alice in Wonderland Suite, Grace Hartigan and Frank O’Hara’s Oranges, Dennis Ashbaugh and William Gibson’s Agrippa, Jeff Vandermeer and Eric Schaller’s The Exchange, Alexis Smith and Amy Gertsler’s Past Lives, Matt Kish’s illustrations of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, Rebecca Campbell and Nicole Walker’s 7 Rings: An Artist’s Game of Telephone, and Danez Smith and Sam Vernon’s fall poem and the Broadsided Press. Join us on this journey through time to explore extraordinary collaborative projects.
