Lubaina Himid: Warp and Weft, Firstsite, Colchester
2017 Turner Prize nominee Lubaina Himid, a key figure in the British Black Arts Movement, first came to prominence in the 1980s when she began organising exhibitions of work by her peers who were under-represented in the contemporary art scene. This show is comprised of three bodies of work in which the artist adopts the mantel of the History painter to question its imperialist tradition. It includes Naming the Money, the largest installation to make use of Himid’s signature ‘cut-outs’ — paintings made on freestanding, shaped boards that viewers can walk among.
