Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossro...

Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossro...

Presented by Gardiner Museum at Gardiner Museum

Renaissance Venice was a multicultural metropolis at the intersection of trade routes linking Europe to the Islamic World, with pigments, spices, and luxury objects flowing through the city. The Gardiner Museum invites visitors to discover the lives of Venetians across the social spectrum, from tradespeople to wealthy elites. Lush, theatrical sets and digital animations will transport visitors to the Floating City. Step into the workshop of the potter-entrepreneur and uncover a counter-narrative about the experiences of Renaissance women.

"Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossroads" recreates a sensory world of more than 110 objects, ranging from Chinese porcelain and Islamic metalware to Venetian textiles and glass. Ceramics from the Gardiner’s collection are displayed alongside objects from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Victoria and Albert Museum, The Detroit Institute of Arts, The Corning Museum of Glass, The Royal Ontario Museum, Aga Khan Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Bata Shoe Museum, and Textile Museum of Canada, among other lending institutions and private collections.
