Lubaina Himid: Workshop Manual

Edited by Lisa Panting, Malin Stahl. Text by Lubaina Himid, Helen Legg, Courtney Martin, Emma Ridgeway, Zoe Whitely.

"1819" (2017) is reproduced from 'Lubaina Himid: Workshop Manual.'

The first full monograph on the work of UK-based painter Lubaina Himid (born 1954) reproduces her paintings and collects her writings from the 1990s to the present. Born in the British protectorate of Zanzibar (now Tanzania), Himid makes colorful, decorative paintings, as well as sculptures and ceramics, generally themed around African experience and the global history of the African diaspora, and often referencing the aesthetics of African textiles.

Himid's career has been a singularly distinguished one: she has spent most of her life in Britain and first became known in the early 1980s as a curator and artist in collaboration with the BLK Art Group, the British Afro-Carribean artists’ group influenced by the United States’ Black Arts Movement. In 2017 Himid became the first black woman to win the Turner Prize.

This superbly produced and important publication is thoroughly illustrated with 280 color images from throughout her career and documentation of more recent exhibitions and projects.

A timely message in 'Lubaina Himid: Workshop Manual'

A timely message in 'Lubaina Himid: Workshop Manual'

"More Tax Less Music" (2014) is reproduced from Lubaina Himid: Workshop Manual, the first complete monograph on the Turner-Prize-winning pioneer of the British Black Arts Movement of the 1980s and 90s. A fitting image for 2020 New Hampshire Primary Day, this painting is from Himid's Lost Election Posters series. "The titles and texts reflect impossible choices and vaguely dystopian scenarios," Himid writes. The works "attempt to question the very notion of how we have arrived at the absurd choices we are forced to adhere to across the present political landscape of the early 21st century. The series plays with my love of textiles, patterns, old fashioned everyday household objects such as ceramics, baskets and children’s toys. As the work developed the imagined protagonist, the black politician, emerged as central to the questions posed about who represents us. These later works are essentially portraits of potential power, each named to remember a year of significant political shifts in thinking." continue to blog
