Open Day & Art Exhibitions at Rhodes House

22 July @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


As part of the Rhodes 120th celebration, exhibitions by leading artists have been created to stimulate thinking and debate, to encourage us to reflect on the Rhodes Scholarships, a complex and difficult past, a vibrant present and a future full of hope.

Join us at Rhodes House on Saturday 22 July 2023 for our first open day of the summer. It’s going to be a day of learning, reflection, connection and joy for families and the community.

There’ll be further open days across the summer, so stay tuned!

‘The World Reimagined’ invites all of us to explore how we understand our shared past and present – in particular the UK’s relationship with the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans – so that we can all play a role in creating a future where racial justice is a reality.

18 unique, large Globe sculptures in Rhodes House Gardens present a Journey of Discovery, exploring themes ranging from ‘Mother Africa’ to ‘Still We Rise’ and ‘Expanding Soul’ with an enormous range of interpretations, creative styles and storytelling.

Inside the new Rhodes House, you can explore ‘I Am Because We Are’ – an exhibition of new works created by acclaimed artist Nicola Green in collaboration with ten Scholars and Fellows from the global Rhodes Trust community.

‘Living with the Legacy of Cecil John Rhodes’ – a photographic exhibition by Professor Shadreck Chirikure that reflects on the question of how we think about the legacy of Cecil Rhodes.
