Hot off the heels of Himid's work being exhibited all over the country, we're now pleased to announce that at long last there is a monograph on the artist's brilliant work. Plus, she lives in Preston and we're always a fan of a fellow Northerner - Staff Pick
First monograph on Turner Prize winning artist.
‘My work is about attempting to belong, about understanding who we are as black people in the diaspora, how much we have contributed across Europe in terms of culture, building, the wealth of the European machine.’ — Lubaina Himid
