Exhibition Programme

Re-Visioning the Brontës has been conceived with the intent of supporting two exhibitions to be held in Leeds from December. Each exhibition will uniquely examine the Brontës as a contemporary source of inspiration through the display of new work by artists from several fields. During the associated interdisciplinary conference, we will seek to further address the issues arising from the interpretation and adaptation of the Brontë family and their legacy.

Wildness Between Lines

Leeds College of Art
14th December 2012 - 2nd 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 Brontë family can be seen in a wide variety of contemporary creativity. This exhibition is a special opportunity to see, in one place, the work 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
7th January - 23rd 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 interpretation of this material by students from Leeds College of Art's Visual Communications course.
