Exhibitions

THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY staff and invited curators prepare public exhibitions of material selected from the collections.


The present exhibition, "Women of the Page: Convent Culture in the Early Modern Spanish World," showcases the John Carter Brown Library's extraordinary collection of images and books centered on nuns and convent life across Spain and its empire. The exhibition, curated by former JCB fellow Tanya Tiffany (Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), will be on view February through April 2017. 

Recent exhibitions may also be visited virtually. The online version serves as a record of an exhibition and ensures that our audience will be able to view the treasures of the John Carter Brown Library from any place on earth with internet access. Many of these books may be seen in their entirety online on the JCB's Internet Archive site.
