Lubaina Himid in three exhibitions
Born in Zanzibar in 1954 and brought up in Britain, Lubaina Himid was a pioneer of the Black Arts Movement. Her work examines the experience of people of the diaspora and their contribution to history and culture. Trained as a theatre designer, Himid went on to curate several important exhibitions focused on the work of Black British artists, alongside her own work as an artist.
This film was commissioned as part of a national tour of Lubaina Himid’s work funded by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring fund.
