"The Triumph of Isabella" is a year-long exploration of eight iconic 17th century paintings. Denys Van Alsloot's artworks are among the most important in existence for the study of festive culture and street performance history. In this special talk, discover how a group of international artists have collaborated to combine art, technology and performance and bring this Medieval project to life.

This talk is presented by the International Program for Creative Collaboration & Research of the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies at the University of Maryland in collaboration with the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library and the School of Music.
