Exhibition

Very Like a Whale  

October 16, 2012–January 6, 2013
10am–5pm Monday–Saturday
12pm–5pm Sunday
Folger Great Hall

Curators: Rosamond Purcell and Michael Witmore

Is anything what it seems? That is the question posed by "Very Like a Whale," a new collaboration between Michael Witmore, Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, and artist Rosamond Purcell. By juxtaposing books and manuscripts from the Folger collection, natural history objects, Purcell’s photographs, and passages from Shakespeare and other early-modern thinkers, this exhibition explores the interplay between the real world and the world of the Renaissance imagination.
