While many museums remain shuttered due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are now reopening as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
With toys and games, cutlery, clocks, furniture and much more besides – all drawn from the Musée du Cluny’s collection– this exhibition shines a light on daily life in the Middle Ages in Europe. The display considers what the functional objects with which people of different means surrounded themselves might reveal about how they lived, from personal hygiene to private religious practices. It is suggested that artisanal craftspeople were as important as artists in terms of their contributions to medieval culture. Find out more about the exhibition, which runs until 28 September, from the Cluny’s website (open to the public from 1 July).
