Lubaina Himid in Conversation

Watch Lubaina Himid in conversation with Tate Director Maria Balshaw

The work of British artist Lubaina Himid celebrates Black creativity and the people of the African diaspora, while challenging forms of institutional invisibility. In a practice that includes paintings, prints, drawings and installations, she has addressed the histories and legacies of colonialism and slavery, and engaged with political questions and artistic traditions from the eighteenth century to the present day.

Hear Himid discuss her career, how her practice continues to evolve, and what winning the Turner Prize in 2017 meant to her.
