Charging Against Napoleon: Wellington's Campaigns in the Peninsular Wars and at Waterloo

  • 22 May — 6 September 2015 *on now

The Napoleonic Wars, which were fought between Britain, France and their allies from 1803, came to an end with the Battle of Waterloo on the 18 June 1815. This exhibition, timed to coincide with the bicentenary of Waterloo, reflects on the conflict in its later stages, from the Peninsular Wars in Spain and Portugal in 1808 to the end of hostilities seven years later.

Drawing on the material from The University of Nottingham's collections, the exhibition assesses the nature and impact of the war and its consequences. The displays describe key moments in the conflict, chart the rise to prominence of military commanders such as the Duke of Wellington and reveal Nottinghamshire's contribution to the war effort.

The exhibition also explores the wider legacy of the wars. In Spain, British forces fought alongside those seeking liberation from foreign conquest. In Britain, the return of peace was accompanied by new demands for political and social change.

The exhibition has been jointly curated by Richard Gaunt (associate Professor of History in the School of Humanities) and Manuscripts and Special Collections at the University of Nottingham.

Emily Allchurch

Emily Allchurch

  • 18 July — 31 August 2015 *on now

Emily Allchurch uses photography to recreate old master paintings and prints, creating contemporary narratives. She has reworked compositions by Peter Bruegel the Elder, Utagawa Hiroshige, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Adolphe Valette and James Abbott McNeill Whistler. Her works are seamless digital collages, using hundreds of photographs taken in urban environments today. The complex photographic images have a resonance with place, history, culture and deal with passage of time and the changes to a landscape, fusing contemporary life with a sense of history.

The exhibition will showcase Allchurch's celebrated Tokyo Story and Tokaido Road series, which pay homage to the 19th century Japanese printmaker Hiroshige. Produced as lightboxes, they reveal not only the changing nature of the topography but also the changes to Japanese society and customs. They will be shown alongside rarely seen original Hiroshige woodblock prints.

Also on show is a selection of works with an urban European theme. This includes a recreation on Whistler's Nocturne: Blue and Silver Cremorne Lights and works inspired by Piranesi's 18th century etchings of urban fantasies. Allchurch will also show her newly commissioned work for Manchester Art Gallery based on Albert Square, Manchester by French Impressionist Valette, creating a dialogue between the Edwardian and contemporary city.

A new artwork inspired by Breugel's The Tower of Babel will feature at the Djanogly. Depicting the architecture and buildings of London, this work will inspire a series of workshops for families and young people throughout the exhibition exploring the role of urban areas and architecture in our lives.

Commemorating Waterloo 1815-2015

  • 5 August 2015 1-2pm *on now

For years, Britons commemorated the Battle of Waterloo in a myriad of ways. However, after Wellington's death in 1852, official acts of public commemoration declined as the legacy of Waterloo was both contested and politicised. In this talk, Dr Russ Foster, a specialist on Wellington, considers why this remains the case to this day.
