Exhibition: "So Many Dreams"
An influential figure in contemporary art, from the central role she played in the British Black Art movement in the 1980s right up to her winning the prestigious Turner Prize in 2017, Lubaina Himid (*1954, Zanzibar) has constantly explored the possibilities that painting offers while questioning the narratives it conveys. In doing so, she has drawn attention both to aspects of history that have been made invisible and to the extraordinary moments of daily life. Active as an artist for over four decades, Lubaina Himid has also been a pioneering curator, championing artists from the diaspora. Initially trained as a theater designer at Wimbledon College of Art before completing a master’s degree at the Royal College of Art in London, Lubaina Himid has since developed a powerful and singular body of work whose imagery and inspiration draw as much from her interest in theater and opera, the history of Western painting and textile patterns from around the world, as from her exploration of colonial histories and their contemporary repercussions.
