Join Sarah on the 14 August at the Royal Academy of Arts. Wanderlust brings together 80 of Joseph Cornell’s most remarkable boxes, assemblages, collages and films, some never before seen outside the USA.

Cornell is best-known for his ‘shadow boxes’: modest, glass-fronted constructions which transport the viewer into imagined realms. These miniature masterpieces transform everyday objects into spellbinding treasures. Together they reveal his fascination with subjects from astronomy and cinema to literature and ornithology and especially his love of European culture, from the Romantic ballet to Renaissance Italy.
