The World Reimagined

Head to our ground-floor foyer, near the gallery entrance, to find The World Reimagined globe artwork.

This globe was created by Chorlton High School as part of The World Reimagined, a UK-wide art education project transforming how we understand the Transatlantic Trade in enslaved Africa and its impact on us all.

You can see other globes around Manchester at: Manchester Central Library, the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre, Ducie Street Warehouse, Moss Side Millennium Powerhouse, Longsight Art Space, Sainsbury’s Lymm, and the Royal Northern College of Music.

About The World Reimagined

The World Reimagined will see trails of large globe sculptures in cities across the UK in from Aug-Oct 2022, created by artists to bring to life the impact of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. The first globe design for The World Reimagined will be conceived by our Founding Artist Yinka Shonibare CBE.

The trails will be the centre of a broader education and engagement programme, with hundreds of schools, community groups, sporting and cultural institutions across the country. The World Reimagined is a vibrant project that will inspire and instill pride in what it means to be Black and British and help us all better understand what it means to be British.

This globe artwork will be in our foyer from August until October.
