The Turner Prize award money is 40,000 pounds ($54,000), with 25,000 pounds going to the victor and 5,000 pounds each for the other short-listed artists. In 2017 Himid had solo shows at Modern Art Oxford and Spike Island in Bristol and participated in Nottingham Contemporary'sThe Place is Here survey of 1980s black artists.
Artist Lubaina Himid, 63, was awarded the Turner Prize, becoming the oldest victor and first black woman to win the coveted art award. The others shortlisted were Hurvin Anderson, Andrea Büttner and Rosalind Nashashibi.
The jury commended the nominated artists for their socially engaged and visually imaginative work. Himid was praised for her "uncompromising tackling of issues including colonial history and how racism persists today".
"I won it for all the times where we put our heads above the parapet, we tried to do things, we failed, people died in the meantime ... for all the black women who never did win it even though they had been shortlisted ... it feels good for that reason", Himid said.
Alongside her artistic practice Himid has curated exhibitions to showcase underrepresented Black artists. The jury also acknowledged her role as an influential curator and educator who continues to speak urgently to the moment.
Himid makes paintings, prints, drawings and installations which celebrate Black creativity and the people of the African diaspora while challenging institutional invisibility.
