During the Middle Ages, the regions surrounding the Mediterranean Sea were sites of interaction and exchange between many cultures and artistic traditions. Justine Andrews, associate professor of art history at the University of New Mexico, examines the relationships between Byzantium and its eastern and western neighbors, and the effects of trade, political alliances, and the Crusades on painting and architecture. Her lecture highlights the arts of Cyprus, which particularly expressed the unique convergence of artistic crossroads. Complements the exhibition Heaven and Earth: Byzantine Illumination at the Cultural Crossroads.
