CONGRATULATIONS to Lubaina Himid, winner of the 2017 #TurnerPrize. Lubaina’s work ‘The Carrot Piece’ is currently on display at Tate Britain.
It shows a white man failing to tempt a black woman with a carrot. Her arms are already full with everything she needs. Himid says that when the work was made, cultural institutions ‘needed to be seen’ to be integrating black people into their programmes and ‘we as black women understood how we were being patronised ... to be cajoled and distracted by silly games and pointless offers. We understood, but we knew what sustained us ... and what we really needed to make a positive cultural contribution: self-belief, inherited wisdom, education and love.’
