This exhibition focuses on the Barberini tapestries, some of the most splendid and important “portable monuments” of seventeenth century Rome.  It is a collaborative project that has at its core the Life of Christ tapestry set in the collection of the Cathedral recently conserved by the Textile Conservation Lab. Both venues present the tapestries in a richly layered context that expands their artistic, political, religious, allegorical, technical, and anthropological themes. The exhibition also addresses the flexibility of use and installation that is a defining aspect of the tapestry medium. A scholarly catalogue written by James G. Harper and Marlene Eidelheit accompanies the exhibition.
