Re-Visit: In Conversation: Lubaina Himid & Courtney J. Martin

Posted

On Friday 17 February 2017, a public talk between artist Lubaina Himid and art historian Courtney J. Martin took place at Modern Art Oxford. In this event Courtney J Martin focuses their conversation discussion on Himid’s curatorial practice and her experiences in early life.

Courtney J. Martin is an assistant professor in the History of Art and Architecture department at Brown University. As an art historian of the modern and contemporary fields, her scholarship is invested in the ways in which the post-1968 period altered art and artists internationally. Her writing and teaching is concentrated in three areas: twentieth century British art, sculpture studies and the history of art criticism.

The talk is part of Invisible Strategies, the first major survey exhibition by British artist Lubaina Himid. One of the pioneers of the British Black Arts Movement, Himid first came to prominence in the 1980s when she began organising exhibitions of work by her peers, whom she felt were under-represented in the contemporary art scene. Invisible Strategies brings together a wide range of Himid’s paintings from the 1980s to the present day, as well as sculptures, ceramics and works on paper.

Invisible Strategies at Modern Art Oxford (20 Jan – 30 April 2017) co-curated by Ciara Moloney, Emma Ridgway and Stephanie Straine with Sara Lowes.

 

Lubaina Himid: Invisible Strategies – Timelapse

Posted

Modern Art Oxford presents the first major survey exhibition by British artist Lubaina Himid. One of the pioneers of the British Black Arts Movement, Himid first came to prominence in the 1980s when she began organising exhibitions of work by her peers, whom she felt were under-represented in the contemporary art scene. Himid’s work challenges the stereotypical depictions of black figures in art history, foregrounding the contribution of the African diaspora to Western culture.

Invisible Strategies brings together a wide range of Himid’s paintings from the 1980s to the present day, as well as sculptures, ceramics and works on paper. Containing many works shown for the first time in decades alongside pieces never-before seen in a public gallery, this exhibition highlights Himid’s consistently thought-provoking and distinctive visual style.
