Stitched artwork by Harriet Riddell
23 September - 4 November 2023

Harriet Riddell is the textile performance artist who completed the artwork Left arm or Right? which documents the vaccination programme rollout at Oxford University Hospitals and can be seen in the John Radcliffe Hospital main entrance.

Harriet has travelled around the world with her sewing machine, creating art in unusual locations from markets, jungles, tops of mountains and floating villages to African slums and Swiss streets.

Recently, Harriet became a mother; she now finds her inspiration in slightly less exotic but by no means less beautiful settings such as launderettes and cafés. In this exhibition she captures and celebrates the mundane.

Our Future in Focus

Staff portraits to celebrate NHS 75
5 July 2023

Our future in focus celebrates the best of Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) - its people, their values and the modern facilities and cutting-edge healthcare we are dedicated to delivering, both now and in the future.

The exhibition was conceived by the Trust's in-house Clinical Photography team based at the John Radcliffe Hospital. Through the lens of each of our six talented Clinical Photographers, Our future in focus showcases the dedication, innovation, compassion and professional pride that exists across OUH.

One Team One OUH

A response to COVID-19
December 2020
This exhibition brings together paintings and photographs of, and by, OUH staff in response to COVID-19.

It includes photographs documenting the changing working conditions for OUH staff during the pandemic by staff member Jon Lewis, as well as reproductions of paintings by Zito Soares Da Silva (pictured on the South Street Gallery page), a member of our Intensive Care Unit's housekeeping team, who painted his response to the work of his colleagues on the ward.

Also displayed are a selection of portraits of OUH staff created as part of a national project - Portraits of NHS Heroes - developed by the Oxford portrait painter Tom Croft, and work by artists who have generously given their time and creativity to thank NHS staff by auctioning and selling their artwork such as Emma Waddleton (whose painting The Hug is pictured) and Adam Dant.
