Africa Centre, London 1983
5 Black Women : Exhibition of drawings, paintings and sculpture
5th September to 14th October 1983
Lubaina Himid, Houria Niati, Sonia Boyce, Veronica Ryan, Claudette Johnson
The artists have chosen to exhibit together although the work of each is highly individual and makes its own artistic and political statement. As the first major show by women to be mounted in the Africa Centre Gallery the exhibition will demonstrate , both collectively and individually, some of the experiences and concerns of black women whose observations and critique are expressed through art.
Two of the artists are African, two British born of West Indian parentage and one was born in the Caribbean and educated in Britain.
