Tonight we will survey through the images themselves the full range of alchemy from 3rd century Alexandrian alchemy to 21st century practice. Among the highlights will be the Splendor Solis, Atalanta Fugiens, Aurora Consurgens, Une Semaine de Bonté, and a few other oddities and some musical selections.
