Title: The Sonia Boyce Exhibition, The AIR Gallery, London
Author: Ekua

review is accompanied by 2 photographic reproductions of paintings: Lay Back, keep Quiet and Think of What Made Britain So Great and Big Womens Talk. From the review: “…Two years later she attended the first National Conference of Black artists in Wolverhampton. In many respects this marked a turning point in her life. Her past years at college had been hampered by the inaccessibility of any information about black artists in general, but more specifically, by the lack of contact with other black students…She also met up with Lubaina Himid, with whom she has subsequently continued to work in close contact with. Himid also encouraged Boyce to publicly exhibit her work.”
