Hidden / Revealed: Royal Holloway 2017
Date
18 - 29/09/2017
Location:
Exhibition Space Davison Building
Description
Our opening exhibition was both community-curated and created. Staff, student and alumni were invited to respond to the theme of 'Hidden/Revealed: Royal Holloway 2017' with three photographs. Our photographers also wrote texts to accompany their submissions. The resulting triptychs and their labels provided fascinating insights into working, living and learning at Royal Holloway.

Hospitality on the Pilgrim Road to Santiago de Compostela

Location:
Exhibition Space Davison Building
Description
For eleven centuries, the Road to Santiago de Compostela – the 'Camino de Santiago', 'Jakobsweg', 'Cammino di Santiago di Compostela' or 'Way of St James' has been a highway of knowledge. This exhibition was a chance to see a collection of 48 photographs, taken over a period of 26 years by Manuel G. Vicente, who's images capture the solidarity, friendship and mutual understanding forged by people of all ages and nations, of all faiths and none, who walk the Road.

Suffrage: Education, Activism and Votes for Women

Suffrage: Education, Activism and Votes for Women
Date
15/01/2018 - 17/03/2018
Location:
Emily Wilding Davison Building, Windsor Auditorium Building
Description
The provision of women's education provides a unique insight into the campaign for Suffrage. Archival material from Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, including commentaries by students and staff in the form of diaries, magazines and letters, charts the reception of both Suffrage and the Suffragettes in the Colleges and beyond. Loans from the Museum of London and Women's Library, including hunger strike medals and sashes, position the College material in the wider context of the campaign for women's rights. The exhibition culminates in an examination of what the Representation of the People Act really meant and for whom.
