Lubaina Himid in Conversation

Turner prize-winning contemporary artist Lubaina Himid will be joining The Guardian for a special live streamed event.
In 2017, Lubaina Himid made history as the first Black Woman to win the Turner prize, awarded for her work addressing racial politics and the legacy of slavery. The judges praised her “uncompromising tackling of issues including colonial history and how racism persists today”. Initially trained in theatre design, Himid is a natural storyteller, with an innovative approach to painting and social engagement.
In her new solo exhibition at Tate Modern, Himid positions the audience member as the protagonist, deliberately placing them in the centre of the action. She will be joining art critic Hettie Judah for a livestreamed conversation about her life’s work and contributions to the British Black arts movement, the inspirations behind some of her pieces, and her exhibition at Tate Modern.
This event is produced in partnership with Tate Modern. The exhibition continues until 3 July.
