Delio Gennai’s Ri/Affioramenti: Encountering the Other in Pisa and Visual ‘Echoes’ of Medieval Mediterranean Italy

Time: Thur Sept 20 3pm
Location: Scales Fine Arts Center, Room 102


Wake Forest University Romace Languages professor Roberta Morosini will present a talk focusing on the evocation of the culture of late-medieval Pisa in the artwork of featured artist Delio Gennai.

Gennai is an installation artist working primarily with paper. Many of his pieces concentrate on the Islamic sources of these elements and their Kufic script, highlighting the hybrid qualities of art created during periods of both conflict and cultural interaction.

The lecture is free and open to the public and will be followed by a small reception. For more information please visit: hanesgallery.wfu.edu/ofpaper
