An exhibition of new works by Lubaina Himid (b.1954), one of the most influential figures working in contemporary art, will be unveiled at Cristea Roberts Gallery from 10 March – 22 April 2023.


Join us for the Private View of Alla Prima/Cross Hatch on 9 March 2023. 

Marking Lubaina Himid's first major print project and her first exhibition with Cristea Roberts Gallery, the artist has made twenty-four hand-painted screenprints. Each work on paper, characterised by Himid’s distinctive bold patterns and vibrant colours, features enlarged details from engravings by the eighteenth-century British satirical artist, William Hogarth.

Himid comments; “The process of making these prints with Magda Stawarska was exhilarating. The paintings on paper, some fast and wet, some laborious and slow, were paired with the Hogarth engraving details like horses and jockeys or spirits and mixers; the dream for the outcome was always measured but risky, hopeful yet perilous.”
