Gurminder Sikand Tree Spirits 1991

Exhibition: The Goddess, the Deity & the Cyborg

Drawing from the works in The Women’s Art Collection as well as loans from public and private collections, the exhibition explores the enduring appeal of the goddess and traces how artists have adapted and even transformed the goddess into an ambiguous figure undefined by gender or even bodily form.

Enslavement and Salvation at Queens’ College: an Old Library exhibition

Thu 27 October 2022 - Fri 2 December 2022

Queens' Old Library

Following two years’ research, this exhibition investigates Queens’ College’s links to the Atlantic Slave Trade, exploring the complex lives and worlds of a variety of Queens’ members through books and other objects they left behind. Focusing on intertwined networks of evangelical abolitionists and slave-owning family members at Queens', these material legacies offer a revealing window into some of the political, spiritual and social factors out of which enslavement came to occupy so natural a part of life in Britain during its age of empire.
