New Leonora Carrington art history volume features feminist arts and curatorial practice of SALC’s Dr Jenna Ashton’s
A new publication on the influence of the late artist Leonora Carrington on contemporary artists will feature Dr Jenna Ashton's feminist arts and curatorial practice.
Dr Ashton is an artist, curator and producer, and Lecturer in Heritage Studies at the Institute for Cultural Practices at The University of Manchester. Her interdisciplinary research contributes to community practices for social and environmental change, and to evolving arts-based and mixed-methods research within heritage studies.
The new book The medium of Leonora Carrington by Catriona McAra, published by Manchester University Press, includes an interview with Dr Ashton on the project "House of Opposites" 2020-21, created in collaboration with artists Alice Kettle, Alison Duddle, and Eleanor Mulhearn. The InsideOutsideHouse artist collective which includes Dr Ashton, went on to evolve this work at AirSpace Gallery for the British Ceramics Biennial in 2021.
