Lubaina Himid: Our Kisses are Petals

Friday 11 May 2018Sunday 28 October 2018

Exhibition by Turner Prize-winning artist Lubaina Himid of new paintings on cloth. The works focus on the patterns, colours and symbolism of the Kanga, a vibrant cotton fabric traditionally worn by East African women as a shawl, head scarf, baby carrier, or wrapped around the waist. Typically, kangas consist of three parts: the pindo (border), the mji (central motif), and the jina (message or 'name'), which often takes the form of a riddle or proverb.
