Lubaina Himid – Signed Special Edition Exhibition Book

Lubaina Himid - Signed Special Edition Exhibition Book - 2021

In a limited run of just 300 copies, this signed special edition exhibition book is presented in a clothbound slipcase featuring a hand-painted pattern from the artist, created especially for the edition.

Lubaina Himid has long wanted to create a publication that explores the key themes and concerns in her work using a fresh and intriguing approach. This innovative exhibition book breaks from the traditional artist monograph and instead serves as a useful manual for readers, using a series of ‘how-to’ sections inspired by the artist’s work.

Contributions on topics such as ‘How to paint on things’, ‘How to write in code’, ‘How to do magic’, ‘How to be funny’, ‘How to make a life plan using poetry’ address the key artistic interests of Himid’s career, particularly her exploration of the history of painting, political satire, poetry and spoken word, architecture and spaces for feeling safe, and for creativity, textiles and the non-verbal messages of pattern. The artist contributes new texts of her own, and contributors from a variety of backgrounds and expertise will write from perspectives that set Himid’s work and artistic interests into wider contexts. The publication will also include a selection of the poetry that has influenced the artist throughout her career.
