The World Reimagined

Open Day | Explore The World Reimagined at Rhodes House!


The World Reimagined has arrived in Oxford! 18 unique large Globe sculptures are now exhibited in the gardens of Rhodes House. The Globes 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.

Join us at Rhodes House on Saturday 22 July 2023 for the exhibition’s first open day of the summer – and it’s free! With a soundtrack of live steelpan music, it’s going to be a day of learning, reflection, connection and joy for families and the community.

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.
