Viewing Sonia Boyce: Feeling Her Way

Sonia Boyce is used to breaking ground. She was the first black British female artist to have a painting purchased by the Tate and the first to be elected to the Royal Academy. Last year, she hit headlines for being the first Black woman to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale.

Boyce’s biennale exhibition, Feeling Her way — a development of Devotional, her long-term project which honours the significant contribution of Black British female musicians and singers — garnered widespread critical acclaim and won her the Golden Lion for Best National Participation.

Now it’s going on show at Turner Contemporary in Margate, before touring to Leeds Art Gallery in the spring. Commissioned by the British Council for the British Pavilion, the installation combines video, collage, music and sculpture and features Jacqui Dankworth, Poppy Ajudha, Sofia Jernberg, Tanita Tikaram, and composer Errollyn Wallen.

‘This joyful, ambitious installation celebrates female creativity and collaboration – of finding a voice – and we look forward to presenting it in Margate,’ says Clarrie Wallis, Director of Turner Contemporary. Not surprisingly, we can’t wait.
