An international centre for the study of Spanish and Latin American art, which is being created in Bishop Auckland, has appointed its first director.

Dr Stefano Cracolici, Associate Professor (Reader) in Durham University’s School of Modern Languages and Cultures will lead the new Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art.

The Centre will be run by Durham University, it has already begun operating and staff will move into newly refurbished dedicated premises in Roper House, Bishop Auckland Market Place in 2018.

The Centre forms part of the University’s partnership with The Auckland Project and will connect Durham’s academic research to displays at the Project’s Spanish Gallery.

The centre will also provide opportunities for students, fellows and public engagement.
