Single sheet A4 portrait/monochrome photocopy from original/From the Preview/Art section of Time Out magazine, no date/subtitle of page reads: “News, views and new reviews. Edited by Sarah Kent“

Title: Sonia Boyce (AIR)
Review is accompanied by a reproduction of a painting - Aunt Enid - by Sonia Boyce.

An extract from the article: “The main strength of Sonia Boyce’s drawings comes from their particularity - from being rooted in personal observation and memory and carrying the detailed conviction of autobiography. Their wider importance stems from their wider significance. When a black woman asserts her right to visibility by clearly and boldly affirming her world view, that act of assertion is a political intervention of no mean importance. Don’t miss this splendid show.”
