The exhibition Anaqronías: a photographic interpretation of Cervantes, commissioned from Juan Cerón, comes to the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester, to display an updated image of female characters that feature in El Quijote by Miguel de Cervantes.
A major exhibition exploring the non-stop nature of modern lives. Curated by Somerset House and Sarah Cook, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey from the cold light of the moon to the fading warmth of the sunset through a series of interactive installations and interrogations of 24/7 life. The exhibition is inspired by the book of the same title by art critic and essayist Jonathan Crary (Verso, 2013).
Leighton's attraction for Spain, although fascinating, is little-researched and it is only known through half a dozen landscape studies, often unidentified, and a lecture given to the students of the Royal Academy in 1889. This lecture sheds light on Leighton's interest for Spanish art and culture and it is presented by art historian Véronique Gerard Powell.
