Thank you to all who joined us on February 7, 2019 for Hamilton artist Michael Allgoewer’s talk. A full house! Michael spoke about the body of work he produced for his exhibition 1514 and the enigmatic Albrecht Dürer engraving, Melencolia I, that inspired it all. A lively Q&A followed his talk.
For those who missed it, or would like to review it, we recorded the formal portion of his presentation. Watch it now:
Michael Allgoewer’s exhibition 1514 includes nine recent sculptural and mixed media works. It is on view at the McMaster Museum of Art until March 16, 2019.
