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

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.

Lubaina Himid: Work from UnderneathLubaina Himid: Work from Underneath

Published by New Museum.
Edited with interview by Natalie Bell. Foreword by Lisa Phillips. Text by Jessica Bell Brown, Fred Moten.

Work from Underneath marks the first solo museum show in the United States of Turner Prize–winning British artist Lubaina Himid (born 1954).

A pioneer of the British Black Arts Movement of the 1980s and ’90s, Himid has long championed invisible and marginalized histories, and throughout the last three decades, Himid’s works in drawing, painting, sculpture and textile have critiqued the consequences of colonialism and questioned the invisibility of people of color in art as well as in the media.

Catalog contributors include art historian Jessica Bell Brown, poet and theorist Fred Moten, and an interview with the artist by New Museum Associate Curator, Natalie Bell.

Lubaina Himid: Work from Underneath is part of an ongoing series of solo exhibitions that provide a focused exploration of artists’ practices and continues the New Museum’s history of giving contemporary artists their first museum presentations in New York.
