G2 Cover 11.06.2020

Lubaina Himid


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. “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 famed 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.”

Printed on Hahnememuhle Photorag paper and available in size 12x10 inches. 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.
