The Society’s highly-acclaimed Shackleton centenary exhibition, Enduring Eye: the Antarctic Legacy of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Frank Hurley, is now free to view at Manchester’s Central Library.
The Enduring Eye exhibition opened at Manchester Central Library on Saturday 9 April and will be on free display to the public until Saturday 11 June.
Honouring the achievements of Sir Ernest Shackleton and the men of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-1917, the exhibition’s newly digitised images reveal previously unseen details of life on the expedition both before and after the Endurance sank through the ice of the Weddell Sea.
The exhibition’s opening in Manchester, which follows its November to February residency at the Society, marks the start of a four venue tour of the UK. Following Manchester, it will travel to venues in the Midlands, Scotland and Wales.
The exhibition’s tour is linked to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a new project, Shackleton’s Endurance: discovering our shared Antarctic Heritage, focusing on the local men who accompanied Shackleton on the expedition. As part of this project, digitised images of lantern slides owned by expedition physicist Reginald James are on display for the first time.
From 1 January 2019, Fellows will be able to opt for digital access to all of our academic journals.
