This conference is part of a larger project that also includes:
Wildness Between Lines
Leeds College of Art, 14 December 2012 – 2 February 2013
Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall; these are just some of the works produced by the Brontës which have an enduring and universal appeal. The inspirational legacy of the Bronte family can be seen in a wide variety of contemporary creativity.
This exhibition is a unique opportunity to see, in one place, the work of a number of emerging and established artists, all of whom cite the Brontës as a source of continuing inspiration for their own creative practice.
Visions of Angria
Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery, Leeds University
7 January – 23 February 2013
This exhibition highlights rarely seen manuscript material written by the young Branwell Brontë from the Brotherton Library Special Collections which has been ‘brought to life’ by contemporary interpretations of this material by students from Leeds College of Art’s Visual Communications course.
