A theatrical exhibition by the Turner Prize winning artist and cultural activist.


Over four decades, Lubaina Himid’s powerful and poetic work has made her an increasingly influential figure in contemporary art – from her pivotal role in the British Black arts movement of the 1980s to winning the Turner Prize in 2017. Opening on 25 November, Tate Modern will present Himid’s largest solo exhibition to date, with over 50 works incorporating new paintings, sound work, installation and significant highlights from across her remarkable career. Taking inspiration from the artist’s interest in opera and her training in theatre design, the show will unfold across a sequence of scenes which put the visitor centre-stage. Through a series of questions placed throughout the exhibition, Himid asks us to consider how the built environment, history, personal relationships and conflict shape the lives we lead. 

Himid says: “I have always thought of my work as starting when people get to see it. For me nothing starts until then.”
