On Thursday 3 March 2016, artist and curator Lubaina Himid joined curator and researcher Paul Goodwin for the twelfth in our series of talks analysing and contextualising exhibitions through the personal accounts of the curators responsible for them.
Himid and Goodwin’s discussion focussed on three exhibitions organised by Himid during the 1980s in London: ‘Five Black Women’ (Africa Centre, 1983), ‘Black Women Art Now’ (Battersea Arts Centre, 1984–85) and ‘The Thin Black Line’ (Institute of Contemporary Arts, 1985).
This event is a collaboration with TrAIN – the University of the Arts Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation – and the Whitechapel Gallery, London. It is part of the Exhibition Histories research and publication project, developed by Afterall and published in association with the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College.
