Lecturing Fellow of Art, Art History & Visual Studies

Overview

Kristin L. Huffman is a Lecturing Fellow in the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University. Her current research focuses on the uses and configurations of space for the visual arts in Early Modern Europe. Her book project, Visual Rhetoric and Spatial Dynamics in Early Modern Venice, examines the intentional construction of visual systems with artistic monuments, their alignment with urban spatial phenomena, and the deliberate ordering and presentation of knowledge and ideologies.

Her interest in lost urban experiences and reconstructing transformed or demolished spaces led her to work with Wired! at Duke as well as Visualizing Venice. For the latter, she helped curate the exhibition, Water and Food in Venice, at the Ducal Palace in 2015. Most recently, she curated the exhibition, A Portrait of Venice: Jacopo de’ Barbari’s View of 1500 at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke., which will become part of a permanent reinstallation at the Correr Museum in Venice, Italy, where the original wooden matrices for de' Barbari's print are housed.

In Fall 2017, she organized and hosted a symposium at Duke, Stories about Venice and de’ Barbari’s Marvelous View of 1500. These studies combined with additional scholarly essays will form an edited volume that combines the scholarly analysis of the View of Venice and the life of the city, together with innovative and highly interactive digital imagery.
