Meet the artists | Lubaina Himid


_Art Basel’s ‘Meet the artists’ series presents contemporary creatives shaping today’s cultural landscape_

Artist and curator Lubaina Himid has made an indelible mark on painting with her vibrant reflections on identity, history, and power. For the past four decades, she’s turned her unflinching eye toward the legacy of colonialism, the transatlantic slave trade, and the contemporary Black experience. ‘As an African artist, what’s important to me is that there is a community, there is a conversation across our shared experience,’ she says.

In this episode of ‘Meet the artists’, we visit Himid in her seaside studio in St Ives, Cornwall, UK. There, she delves deeper into the media that define her practice and _A Fashionable Marriage_ (1986), one of her most celebrated works – and a highlight of Art Basel’s Unlimited sector at the 2023 Swiss edition.

Lubaina Himid is represented by Hollybush Gardens. She will take part in Art Basel Conversations as the Premiere Artist on June 14, 2023 at 1pm. More information available here: Premiere Artist Talk: Lubaina Himid.
