Creative Conversation: ‘She Who Writes Herstory Rewrites History’
Part 3

“I am not a painter in the strictest sense… I am a political strategist who uses a visual language to encourage conversation, argument, change.” Lubaina Himid

Modern Art Oxford is hosting an event addressing the future of art education in secondary schools. Artist and educator Lubaina Himid, Professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Central Lancashire and winner of the Turner Prize 2017, and collaborators will explore how learning to think like artists can open up fresh ways for young people to perceive the world and their place in it.

Collaborators include Helen Cammock, artist; Christine Eyene, artistic director of the 4th International Biennial of Casablanca; Evan Ifekoya, artist; Dr Ingrid Pollard, photographer; Marlene Smith, writer and curator; Dr Zoe Whitley, curator, Tate Modern.

This event series asks what ideas could be taught in schools to demonstrate the power of art and equality, and how we can better share and discuss the concern that art is as much about her-stories as his-stories.

This event has developed from the event She who rewrites Herstory rewrites History (part 1) held on 18 February 2017 and  (part 2) on 3 June 2017.
