In a limited run of three hundred copies, this special-edition publication is presented in a clothbound slipcase featuring a specially-conceived painted pattern. Each publication is individually numbered and signed by the artist. Initially trained in theatre design, Himid is known for her innovative approaches to painting and to social engagement. She has been pivotal in the UK since the 1980s for her contributions to the British Black arts movement, making space for the expression and recognition of Black experience and women’s creativity. Over the last decade she has earned international recognition for her figurative paintings, which explore overlooked and invisible aspects of history and of contemporary, everyday life. In 2017 she was awarded the Turner Prize.
