Lubaina Himid @ Modern Art Oxford
January 21, 2017 - April 30, 2017
The first major survey exhibition by British artist Lubaina Himid, one of the pioneers of the British Black Arts Movement. Himid’s work challenges the stereotypical depictions of black figures in art history, foregrounding the contribution of the African diaspora to Western culture. Invisible Strategies brings together a wide range of Himid’s paintings from the 1980s to the present day, as well as sculptures, ceramics and works on paper. Containing many works shown for the first time in decades alongside pieces never-before seen in a public gallery, this exhibition highlights Himid’s consistently thought-provoking and distinctive visual style.
