Veiled Unveiled

The exhibition will focus on the representation of the veil through sculptures, paintings, drawings and photographs from antiquity to the present day. A veil of modesty or mourning, religious or allegorical, of submission or coquetry, it conceals or enhances certain parts of the body, like a border separating the visible from the invisible. This textile accessory, common to all Mediterranean civilizations and nowadays subject to controversy, deserved to take a step back to better understand the evolution and uses in life and art.
