Windrush’s legacy is not just a London story. Celebrating the 60th anniversary of Jamaica’s independence, the Leeds West Indian community has chosen to celebrate their contribution to the city’s culture with a series of artistic and cultural events at the Out of Many Festival. With the opening of Rebellion to Romance, Curator Susan Peter celebrates the 70s and 80s, collecting photos of family and ephemera from that era to show “that every time we hold something—a ticket to a show, or a poster, or whatever—it helps tell us a story.” .and no one else can tell our story the way we can.” Read the full story here.

Masterpiece of the week

Christine Köpke: The North Drawbridge to the Citadel in Copenhagen (1837)
The cool, clear pink sky gives what at first glance a carefully realistic sight gives a dreamlike power. It’s as if Købke sees this place perfectly in his mind’s eye but with the thrilling hallucinations of the wonderful light added. In fact, Köpke depicts his childhood home in a part of Copenhagen that was once a castle. To him, this drawbridge and these buildings are familiar and deeply meaningful. Just like John Constable, who photographed his “childhood scenes” throughout his life, this Danish artist immerses himself in his past to create an intriguingly intense landscape. His note slips into abstract color effects as the strong red of the bridge’s framing amplifies the power of the pink sky as it interacts with the green foliage. This is not an outer nature but an inner fire, the jewel of romance.
