Carte de Visite – Gallery Talk

A conversation between Lubaina Himid and Christine Eyene

Lubaina Himid discusses her exhibition Carte de Visite with Christine Eyene. Featuring new work by Helen Cammock, Claudette Johnson and Ingrid Pollard, this project developed over a year is a meeting point, an exchange of intangible creative moments, a dialogue stretching beyond the notion of exhibition as an end result.
In this conversation Himid and Eyene will consider the themes explored by the artists, their aesthetics and creative process, collaborative practice in the making of new pieces, and the articulation of private narratives in the context of a public display.


Lubaina Himid is an artist whose recent and forthcoming exhibitions include: Modern History Vol. II & III, curated by Lynda Morris (2015-16); The violent No!, Fiorucci Art Trust, Kastellorizo (2015); Art_Textiles, The Whitworth, Manchester (2015-16); No Colour Bar: Black British Art in Action 1960-1990, Guildhall Gallery, London (2015-16); The Feast Wagon, The Tetley, Leeds (2015-16). Her work sits in several national and international collections including the Tate, V&A, Arts Council Collection and The Whitworth.

Christine Eyene is Guild Research Fellow in Contemporary Art at the University of Central Lancashire where she collaborates to Making Histories Visible, an interdisciplinary visual arts research project. As a curator she has organised a number of international exhibitions notably focusing on the body and gender in the work of African and Diaspora women artists.
