Past Exhibition

Mapping Gothic France

When: March 23 - June 11, 2012

About the Show

Exhibition extended through June 10.

For the past four years Assistant Professor of Art Andrew Tallon has engaged in a research project entitled Mapping Gothic France, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which has taken him (and several Vassar students) along countless kilometers and through hundreds of French towns and villages to explore and document, using the latest technology, the key Gothic buildings of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. To mark the public launch of the resultant website, which features a database of over 10,000 images, texts and historical maps, Professor Tallon, assisted by Ani Kodzhabasheva, Vassar College class of 2012, and students of his spring semester seminar, “Gothic Architecture and the Creation of France”, will mount an innovative and engaging exhibition in the museum atrium. Viewers will be invited to experience Gothic architecture in the parallel dimensions of space, time, and narrative through texts, large-scale digital projections, and interactive virtual-reality images.
