Welcome to our next series of Porthmeor Studios Lunch Breaks.
On Friday October 19th, our speaker is the 2017 Turner Prize winner Lubaina Himid MBE who will be our Porthmeor Artists' Residency Programme guest in Spring 2019 supported by the Porthmeor Fund, John S. Cohen Foundation and Arts Council England.
Lubaina's talk starts at 12 Noon (more info below) and will be followed by a shared lunch of bread and soup made by lovely Dom of CAST Café.
This event is the first Lunch Break after a summer break. We are happy to still be in partnership with Creative Skills and Cultivator who are supported by the European Structural and Investment Funds, Arts Council England and Cornwall Council but, in our preparation for sustainability of the talks after Cultivator funding, we need to charge £5.00 for this event from those who are not our BSJW Trust artists.
Information about Lubaina Himid MBE:
Lubaina Himid lives and works in Preston. Forthcoming solo exhibitions in 2019 include New Museum, New York, and Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem. Himid has held solo exhibitions in a number of institutions recently such as Harris Museum, Preston, and Musée régional d’art contemporain Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditerranée, Sérignan – 2018; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, Spike Island, Bristol, and Modern Art Oxford – 2017.
Group exhibitions include Berlin Biennale, BALTIC, Gateshead, and Glasgow International – 2018; South London Gallery, Nottingham Contemporary, and Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool – 2017; as well as Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven – 2016. Her work is held in several public collections including Tate, Museum Ludwig, National Museums Liverpool, British Council, Arts Council Collections, UK Government Art Collection, Birmingham Museums, Rhode Island School of Design, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Victoria & Albert Museum and Wolverhampton Museum. Himid is professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Central Lancashire where she runs the Making Histories Visible archive and collection. She is the winner of the 2017 Turner Prize.
Lubaina Himid’s work investigates historical representations of the people of African diaspora and highlights the importance of their cultural contribution to the contemporary landscape. Himid was one of the pioneers of the Black Art movement in the 1980s which offered a forum for black artists exploring the social and political issues surrounding black history and identity.
She has participated at an international level in exhibitions, publications and conferences, recently co-curating Thin Black Line(s) at Tate Britain. Though she is known as a painter, recently her work has engaged with museum collections in which she has creatively interrogated the history and representation of the African diaspora and looked at the role of museums in discussion around cultural histories.
She celebrates black creativity and the recognition of cultural contribution.
