13 February 2020
Our tenant Sonia Boyce has been chosen to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale.
“Artist Sonia Boyce to make history at Venice Biennale.
Artist Sonia Boyce is to become the first black woman to represent Great Britain at the prestigious Venice Biennale next year.
Boyce will fly the flag with a major new exhibition at the world's most important contemporary art festival.
She told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the offer came as "a real shock, but a real delight as well". The London-based artist rose to prominence in the 1980s as one of the leading lights in black British art.”
