The Velaslavasay Panorama proudly welcomes an extraordinary exhibition and presentation from The Society for Linian Studies - The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior, which unearths the history of Linian Scholarship.
More than 300 years ago, a man thought lost at sea re-appeared in Italy with accounts of a civilization inhabiting the interior sea of an undiscovered southern continent. Giuseppe Cognomi composed numerous volumes on this advanced and isolated culture - which he called The Linians - and the singular environment they inhabited at the bottom of the world. Though widely disregarded by the scientific community, the tradition of Linian scholarship has been kept alive through the years by a devoted few. The Society for Linian Studies is the first organized attempt to preserve Cognomi's legacy and progress his research.
Saturday, April 11, 2009 marks the opening of The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior, an exhibit examining the fascinating but largely forgotten origins and history of Linian scholarship. The public is invited to explore the Linian Sea through a series of enlightening dioramas based on Cognomi's original drawings, and to learn about notable Linian scholars of the past along the way. The evening debut of the exhibit features a lecture from Lyman Emery, the world's leading Linian Scholar and Director of The Society for Linian Studies.
Crafted through the tireless efforts of The Society for Linian Studies, The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior will remain on view through August 16th of 2009 during our regular open hours - Friday, Saturday, Sunday 12-6pm. This is the première exhibit to be held in the recently refurbished ancillary salon of The Velaslavasay Panorama, a room which shall serve hence as host for a wide array of pleasing temporal presentations. In fitting complement to our current 360-degree arctic panorama Effulgence of the North and in this, the International Polar Year, The Cognomi Theory of the Antarctic Interior adds a southern dimension to our elucid investigations into polar regions and distant landscapes.
