Lubaina Himid CBE is one of the UK’s leading contemporary artists, as well as a curator, writer and Professor of Painting. In this episode we explore the history of Zanzibar and the cultural context which sets the scene for Himid’s work.

The history of Zanzibar is of course much more complex than I outline in this podcast, but Wikipedia does an okay job of a historical overview, with the footnotes of course being first port of call for futher reading.

In this episode I read from Lubaina Himid in Influences, Frieze (2017). Himid was profiled in Frieze the following year also, another good read.
