Sarah Miatt

Our day spent with artist Sarah Miatt at her home and studio is the subject of an earlier blog post. (“Day Eight.”)  Miatt recently opened an exhibition of her work at Cortona’s MAEC (Museo dell’Accademia Estrusco e della Citta’ di Cortona), a unique pairing of a contemporary artist’s work alongside the collection of Etruscan artifacts for which the museum is renowned. While it is rare for a prestigious historical museum such as the MAEC to open its walls to a contemporary artist, their decision to pursue such an experimental juxtapositioning of the ancient and the new is a tribute to the artist for her profound relationship with Etruscan culture and art, and the influence that it has had on her work over many years. A recent interview with the artist discussing her work, and the exhibition, is captured in the video at the bottom of this post.
