“I certainly opened up a conversation”: Lubaina Himid on her Guardian residency

The 2017 Turner prize-winning artist Lubaina Himid is the first Guardian artist in residence. After spending four days in the Guardian’s London office she created a work entitled Random Coincidence, which included the artist painting over pages from the paper over a week-long period. Himid’s focus was the paper’s representation of black people and the juxtaposition of text and image. This project was initiated in collaboration with Liverpool’s Rapid Response Unit as part of a larger commission linking artists to the news cycle.
