Event Details

Friday, April 5, 2024
10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Lynn Mecklenburg Textile Gallery, Room 1235, Nancy Nicholas Hall

Remaking the Renaissance offers a fresh take on this iconic period of textile and fashion history, transforming the way we think about and see the cloth and clothing of the early modern period.  

Remaking the Renaissance draws on the significant textile holdings of the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection and new works from UW researchers, as well as key loans from across UW campus and from the European Research Council-funded Refashioning the Renaissance project.

This exhibition was developed with generous support from Susan J. and Harry C. Engstrom as part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection is ready for the next generation of students and scholars. Additional support comes from the Anonymous Fund.
