Think Big! Gail Rothschild portrays late antique textile finds from Egypt in the Bode Museum
Women and their role in art and society continue to be in focus at the Bode Museum. Parallel to the current exhibition “Der zweite Blick: Women”, a special exhibition by the New York artist Gail Rothschild will be presented from 1 July 2022. Egyptian textiles from the rich collection of the Museum of Byzantine Art are the source of inspiration for her new series of monumental paintings. In juxtaposition with knitted textiles from the 4th to 9th centuries, a fascinating dynamic emerges between past cultural testimonies and contemporary artistic creation.
