The 'total artwork' could mean many things from a frescoed Renaissance chapel (maybe Pinturicchio's Capella Baglione, Spello or Ghirlandaio's in Santa Maria Novella, Florence or Gozzoli's Magi in the Medici Chapel, Palazzo Medici-Riccardi) to an installation by Yayoi Kusama or Pixel Artworks and visual light artist Rupert Newman's digital installations at Outernet, Tottenham Court Rd. It could be a house (Charleston or the Villa Kerylos etc.) or a garden.
Over 10 sessions, we'll explore 10 great total artworks from all periods in depth.
Who commissioned them and why? Where were they displayed? What makes them 'great'?
But you will help decide which ones!
Send in your suggestions by the beginning of August.
