Highlight Tour with Dr. Fahmida Suleman

Presenting Programs Sponsor
The Samuel H. Kress Foundation

Join Dr. Karine Tsoumis for a special tour in conversation with Dr. Fahmida Suleman,
Curator of the Islamic World at the Royal Ontario Museum. In this focused tour, Dr. Suleman will discuss a selection of Islamic artworks featured in the exhibition Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossroads.

About the Exhibition

Renaissance Venice was a multicultural metropolis where migration and mobility shaped the daily lives of its inhabitants. Its position at the crossroads of trade routes linking Europe to the Islamic World brought a continuous flow of commodities like pigments, spices, and luxury objects. In the homes of Venetians, these imported goods complemented locally-made products like maiolica, or tin-glazed earthenware. Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossroads recreates a sensory world of objects, from Chinese porcelain and Islamic metalware to Venetian textiles and glass. Learn more
