Dr Adrian Locke, Exhibitions Curator for the Royal Academy of Arts, discusses the ‘Mexican Migrations’ exhibition being held at firstsite in Colchester. The exhibition was curated by the Essex Collection of Art from Latin America (escala.org.uk], the biggest public collection of Latin American art in Europe, and Adrian explains why this, as well as the University’s Albert Sloman Library, has such international significance and is an asset to the University of Essex.
Mexican Migrations will run from Saturday 15 June to Sunday 3 November 2013: firstsite.uk.net/page/mexican-migrations.
