By Lubaina Himid (Artist), Natalie Bell (Editor), Lisa Phillips (Text by (Art/Photo Books))


Work from Underneath marks the first solo museum show in the United States of Turner Prize-winning British artist Lubaina Himid (born 1954).

A pioneer of the British Black Arts Movement of the 1980s and '90s, Himid has long championed invisible and marginalized histories, and throughout the last three decades, Himid's works in drawing, painting, sculpture and textile have critiqued the consequences of colonialism and questioned the invisibility of people of color in art as well as in the media.

Catalog contributors include art historian Jessica Bell Brown, poet and theorist Fred Moten, and an interview with the artist by New Museum Associate Curator, Natalie Bell.

Lubaina Himid: Work from Underneath is part of an ongoing series of solo exhibitions that provide a focused exploration of artists' practices and continues the New Museum's history of giving contemporary artists their first museum presentations in New York.
