Exhibition ‘El Periquillo Sarniento’

This year marks the bicentennial anniversary of the publication of the first Latin American novel “El Periquillo Sarniento”, by Mexican author José Joaquín Fernández de Lizardi (1776-1827).

This significant fact for Mexican literature and the general culture of Mexico and Latin America inspired the literary-art project “The Mangy Parrot: picaresque novel from Mexico to the world of the arts”, which aims to promote the relationship between art and literature, with an emphasis on different ways of addressing the same themes.

The project’s participants are professors and students from the University of Kragujevac’s Faculty of Philology and Arts.
