The Bishops of London, colonialism and transatlantic slavery: resistance

On display from 24 April 2023

The Church of England was deeply implicated in Britain’s colonial expansion and the transatlantic traffic in enslaved Africans. The Bishop of London, who lived at Fulham Palace, was one of the Church’s most senior figures, having had jurisdiction over the British colonies around the world.

This exhibition is the culmination of a two-year research project. The exhibition, co-curated with spoken word poet Adisa the Verbaliser, worked with 100 participants from the surrounding community to explore the story of resistance of enslaved people through the four major themes: hair, dance (and martial arts), obeah and song.

The exhibition showcases the work of the community participants and examines the systems of physical and spiritual resistance that ultimately led to the ending of the transatlantic traffic in enslaved people and slavery itself in the British Empire. This is set against the backdrop of the historic involvement of the Bishop of London and the Church of England in colonialism and transatlantic slavery.

Moving from science to art

9  – 23 August 2023

After retiring from the medical field, London-based artist Sushma Sabnis draws inspiration from her travels to create multi-layered oil paintings. Sushma’s extensive travels from the Arctic to the Antarctic have influenced her work and choice of palette. In her latest exhibition, Sabnis captures the realism in the ‘atelier’ style in her portraits and still life and used more contemporary painting techniques in the landscapes and florals.


  • This exhibition is on display in the Bishop Terrick rooms
  • Admission is free
  • To avoid disappointment, please check the opening hours for any room closures in advance of your visit
  • Sushma pledges to donate 40% of any sale profits to St Christopher’s Hospice
