ARTES is a Registered Charity (no. 1112883) dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of Iberian and Latin American Visual Culture. It aims to bring together those with a special interest in the arts of Spain, Portugal and Latin America to:
- Promote study and discussion
- Organise regular meetings and visits
- Provide news and information
- Encourage collaboration across all fields and disciplines of Iberian and Latin American visual culture
Architecture… ceramics… drawings… film… metalwork… paintings… photography … prints… sculpture… textiles…
Members receive invitations to lectures, exclusive visits and private tours of exhibitions and collections of Iberian and Latin American art in the UK and Europe with leading experts. Organised by ARTES, these members-only events are advertised on our blog. Please click here to follow the blog. By signing up, you will receive these postings directly in your mailbox, rather than having to consult the website each time. The ARTES blog also advertises events in the field worldwide. Unless noted, these events are not organised by ARTES.
Every autumn members receive InformARTES, our newsletter containing articles, reviews and information on publications, exhibitions and events.
Included in the membership fee is the annual visual arts issue of The Hispanic Research Journal, which is published in October and which contains articles and reviews of fine and decorative arts, design and photography in Iberia and Latin America.
We do our best not to breach copyright and to support institutions by promoting their events. But if you wish to query the reproduction of any images on this website please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to respond as quickly as possible.

The History of ARTES
ARTES was founded in 2000 by Dr Hilary Macartney (University of Glasgow) and Dr Holly Trusted (Victoria & Albert Museum), with the support of founding Honorary Presidents Professor Nigel Glendinning (1927-2013) and Enriqueta Harris Frankfort (1919-2006). Based in the UK and Ireland, ARTES has extensive links to major art institutions throughout the world thanks to its founding members and longtime supporters: Dr Zahira Véliz Bomford (Houston Museum of Arts), Dr Gabriele Finaldi (National Gallery London), Dr Mark McDonald (Metropolitan Museum of Art), Dr Peter Cherry (Trinity College Dublin), Dr Xavier Bray (Wallace Collection), Dr Catherine Whistler (Ashmolean Museum Oxford), Dr Geoff West (British Library), Dr Véronique Gerard Powell (University of Paris-Sorbonne) and Professor Jesusa Vega (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid). Dr Lorne Campbell (former Beaumont Senior Research Curator, National Gallery, and Lecturer, Courtauld Institute of Art), and Dr Catherine Reynolds (Lecturer, University of London, Curator, and Independent Scholar) are Honorary Members. Sir John Elliott (Regius Professor Emeritus, University of Oxford) is our Honorary President.
