Survey of works by the 2017 Turner Prize nominee Lubaina Himid opens in Colchester

Firstsite, Colchester, is presenting Warp and Weft, a survey of works by the 2017 Turner Prize nominee, Lubaina Himid. A key figure in the Black Arts Movement, Himid first came to prominence in the 1980s when she began organising exhibitions of work by her peers, who were under-represented in the contemporary art scene. Her diverse approach disrupts preconcep-tions of the world by introducing historical and contemporary stories of racial bias and acts of violence inflicted upon oppressed communities.
