An educator, artist and curator, Lubaina Himid’s work is widely considered is a cornerstone of the British Black Art Movement. Her degree in theatre design and her interest in opera has had a profound influence on her practice, which encompasses paintings, figurative cut-outs and installations. Himid’s art challenges institutional narratives that have systematically overlooked the legacy of slavery and the foundational contributions to society made by the African diaspora.
