Running throughout 2018 is The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum’s contribution to the commemoration of the Centenary of WW1. During the latter half of the First World War, men and women of all classes and social backgrounds from across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire contributed in a myriad of ways to the war effort.

The exhibitions covers everything from Oxfordshire’s VC winners,…

Start Light Star Bright

January 19 - February 28

Star Light, Star Bright will see the night sky mapped onto the streets of Oxford via pressure sensitive lights embedded in the ground! Placed in clusters across the city, the lights encourage players to gather together to map constellations from the night sky. Each “star” will shine brighter as more are activated until the final star cues super bright beams of light – bathing the people beneath in a constellation of stars. This city-wide intervention brings life to dark winter…

Nicholas Permain: Little Moscow

North Wall Arts Centre
February 21 @ 10:00 am - March 3 @ 4:00 pm

Nicholas Permain, born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is an artist who primarily works with painting. His work reflects on his own heritage of the North East of England, with individualistic narratives alongside both established and interpretative views of history. This solo show sees a new body of work that contemplates the habitation of ‘living museums.’ He specifically considers the animals that inhabit these sites and the conflict between the sincere care they receive and their identity as museum object. In this work,…
