Full Event Details:

Da Vinci Engineered - Renaissance mechanics to contemporary art

In association with Green Port Hull and University of Hull School of Engineering, supported by BAE Systems and Spencer Group

Saturday 2 July – Sunday 21 August 2016
Open daily 10am – 5pm
Zebedee’s Yard, 89 Posterngate, Hull, HU1 2JX

Twelve faithful reproductions of Leonardo da Vinci’s flight and wind machines loaned by Da Vinci Museum, Florence, demonstrate the remarkable prescience of this great artist and his engineering genius. Alongside these Renaissance machines, specially commissioned and selected works by contemporary artists respond to ideas of flight or explore the use of engineering in their conceptualisation, design or production.

This fascinating exhibition, curated by Lara Goodband, reminds us that the creativity of the engineer and the inspiration of the artist are two sides of the same coin of human endeavor and innovation.

A series of associated artists’ talks and hands-on workshops for young people will also take place throughout July and August – visit our website at http://www.amyjohnsonfestival.co.uk from June 1 for more details.
