We have all encountered a common figure of speech asking us to view something "in a different light." The phrase is normally used with reference to an argumentative statement or position, suggesting that there are alternative but equally valid ways of viewing it. Oxford's 2021 theme exhibit will explore this idiom in visual terms. Taken literally, "in a different light" asserts that as the nature or direction of the light changes, so does our interpretation of what we are seeing. We have seen the truth of this in our personal experience, where things viewed in full light are not always the same as things seen in half-light. And "light" here need not refer to a literal light source.

The idiom may, for example, refer to the fact that our beliefs change as we grow older or that our memory of an experience may have changed what actually happened. As Marcel Proust attests, "Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were."
