Description: medievalmodern was a project space in London’s Marylebone that opened in 2002, which aimed to stimulate a dialogue between medieval and contemporary art. We would invite artists to produce work which resonate with and sometimes incorporate medieval pieces. Through this project we aimed to raise a variety of issues ranging from traditional art historical concerns about provenance, museum and exhibition spaces and the decontextualising of the image to more recent issues such as institutional critique, physical and ideological influences of the exhibition site, relation of original to copy, psychological aspects of collecting, the desire of the private collector to assemble and organise, and exploring different aspects of art making and collecting. Gerard Williams, exploring the route of both historic significance and monetary value of medieval objects.
