Tate Modern: Lubaina Himid
Lubaina Himid’s retrospective at the Tate Modern is defined by theatricality, taking the Turner Prize-winning artist and activist’s theatre design background and transforming it into a multi-scene journey through her career, “designed to place visitors centre-stage and backstage”. Through formats, with paintings, words and audio, the exhibition honours her pivotal place in and contributions to the Black British art world.
Articulating and recognising women’s creativity and the Black experience, Lubaina’s retrospective exhibition came to the street with the Tate Collective and AKA. Borrowing the vibrant tones of her work to create eye-catching technicolour takeovers of our sites across London, we brought the campaign to Hackney, Lewisham, Southwark and beyond.
