Opening of Susanne Thea's Paraphrase of the Bayeux Tapestry


Danish artist Sussane Thea goes behind the facade of the famous French Bayeux Tapestry with a detailed portrayal of the consequences of war. The frieze is 72 meters long (236 ft.) and includes 90 color images printed as copper-plate etchings. A project that has occupied Thea for more than three years, the work retells and modernizes the story of the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 with plenty of creative interpretation. On view through May 21. 

An artist's talk and demonstration will take place on Feb. 5 at 1 p.m.
