LYNETTE YIADOM-BOAKYE Exhibition

Millbank

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a British artist and writer acclaimed for her enigmatic portraits of fictitious people. This exhibition brings together around 80 works from 2003 to the present day in the most extensive survey of the artist’s career to date. The figures in Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings are not real people – she creates them from found images and her own imagination. Both familiar and mysterious, they invite viewers to project their own interpretations, and raise important questions of identity and representation. Often painted in spontaneous and instinctive bursts, her figures seem to exist outside of a specific time or place. Her paintings are coupled with poetic titles, such as Tie the Temptress to the Trojan 2016 and To Improvise a Mountain 2018. Writing is central to Yiadom-Boakye’s artistic practice, as she has explained: ‘I write about the things I can’t paint and paint the things I can’t write about.’ Yiadom-Boakye was awarded the prestigious Carnegie Prize in 2018 and was the 2012 recipient of the Pinchuk Foundation Future Generation Prize. She was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2013. Exhibition organised by Tate Britain in collaboration with Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, and Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean Buy tickets here: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/exhibition/lynette-yiadom-boakye -- NOTE: WE ARE NOT HOSTING THIS EVENT SO CONTACT THE ORGANISERS DIRECTLY WITH ANY QUERIES.

ZANELE MUHOLI Exhibition

Tate Modern

Tate Modern presents the first major UK survey of South African visual activist Zanele Muholi. Muholi (b.1972) came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that told the stories of black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives in South Africa. 260 photographs will be brought together to present the full breadth of Muholi’s career to date, from their very first body of work Only Half the Picture, to their on-going series Somnyama Ngonyama. These works challenge dominant ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as fellow human beings bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and often violence.

Khadija Saye: in this space we breathe

Online event

Composed of nine powerfully evocative self-portraits, this display of prints by Gambian-British artist Khadija Saye explores her enduring fascination with traditions of spirituality, and marks the artist’s concern with ‘how trauma is embodied in the black experience’. Saye grew up in London, and her work and photographic technique experiment with the contrast and balance between her life in Britain and The Gambia. Throughout the series Saye uses objects to convey the importance of her personal connection to Gambian rituals – from purification to protection, the artworks demonstrate her desire for moments of spiritual grounding. Saye and her mother, Mary Ajaoi Augustus Mendy, were tragically killed in the Grenfell fire in 2017. Sadly, many of Saye’s emotive, multi-layered and profound artworks, as well as objects used in them, were also lost. In the same year, her works were displayed in the Diaspora Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. This display commemorates Saye’s personal and professional growth, her creative exploration of alternative definitions of femininity, and her enduring artistic legacy. Saye’s work is also featured in our current exhibition Unfinished Business: The Fight for Women’s Rights which runs until February 2021. All tickets must be pre-booked at the moment. Please remember to keep a safe distance from other visitors, and you must wear a face covering at all times.
