About

Lubaina Himid was a pioneer of the Black Arts Movement in Britain in the 1980s, which offered a forum for black artists exploring the social and political issues surrounding black history and identity.

Spike Island’s exhibition — a collaboration with Modern Art Oxford and Nottingham Contemporary — focuses on migration, labour and creativity, longstanding concerns for Himid. Anchored by Naming the Money (2004), a spectacular installation of 100 life-size, painted figures that has been shown only once before in its entirety, the presentation brings into dialogue major works from the past 25 years, honing in on Himid’s theatrical use of cut-outs, colour and pattern.
