Let's See Some British Black Art
Let's discover together the work of one of the most important representatives of British Black Art: Lubaina Himid, the first black woman who won the prestigious Turner Prize in Protected content . Her work focuses on colonial history, racism and institutional invisibility. The exhibition "Naming the money" at the CAPC consists of nearly one hundred life-size painted plywood cut-outs that bring to life African servants depicted in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century European court paintings. Himid gives them back their existence as they had to give up their real names and occupations while working as slaves or domestics. The installation also calls to mind the initial purpose of the building where the CAPC is situated and which was used to store colonial goods in former times.
