Lubaina Himid: The Baltic

Description

Lubaina Himid is currently Professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Central Lancashire. Making Histories Visible, an ongoing interdisciplinary research project based at the university, led by Himid, continues to be a sustained exploration of the contribution of black visual art to the cultural landscape.

As part of her Ground Floor exhibition at BALTIC starting May 11th, Himid will use the traditional patterns and motifs of East African Kanga flags combined with mottos to produce a major outdoor commission. The work will be presented in tandem with a weekly programme of free public events every Sunday, including performances and community happenings. Through this Himid seeks to collaborate with and give visibility to marginalised creative communities.
