Lubaina Himid: You say the magic words, Black Lives Matter: buy an exclusive print

0

The Guardian Print Shop is offering readers the chance to buy an exclusive print, created for the paper by Turner prize-winning artist Lubaina Himid as the cover of a special issue on racism in the UK, that ran in the G2 section. Proceeds will go to the ROOT-ed Zine, a quarterly magazine that aims to inspire, promote and support creatives of colour from, or based, in the north-west

“The piece is a weaving together of found images of West African cloth, plus actual weaving of pieces of found colour photos from magazines,” explains the Preston-based artist, who is known for her riotously colourful, larger-than-life cut-outs that probe issues of race, identity, memory and history. “The text is from Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and is meant, in this instance, to give us the idea that we can change things if we understand what we are changing, and why.”

Proceeds will go to the ROOT-ed Zine, a quarterly magazine that aims to inspire, promote and support creatives of colour from, or based, in the north-west.
