The Year That Made Antarctica

The Year That Made Antarctica

Over dinner in the spring of 1950 a party of scientists produced an ambitious proposal for a global year of science: the International Geophysical Year was born. With a heavy emphasis on Antarctica, thousands of people from dozens of countries came together to learn about our planet.

Madonnas & Miracles

Tue 7 March - Sun 4 June

Fitzwilliam Museum

Peer through the keyhole of the Italian Renaissance home and discover a hidden world of religious devotion. Bringing together a wealth of objects, including jewellery, ceramics, books, sculptures and paintings, the exhibition invites us into a domestic sphere that was charged with spiritual significance. Drawing materials from across the Italian peninsula, and contrasting fine works of art with humble and everyday artefacts, Madonnas and Miracles offers a vivid encounter with Renaissance spirituality and domesticity. Transforming our understanding of a period that is often cast as intensely worldly and secular, the exhibition brings a new appreciation of the relationship between the material and the divine.

This exhibition is the result of four years of European funded cross-disciplinary work carried out by the Italian Department, the Faculties of History, Architecture and History of Art at the University of Cambridge, and incorporates their latest research.
