The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw invites the public to attend a lecture by the British artist Lubaina Himid, winner of last year’s Turner Prize, entitled “Pandora’s Box: Collage, Cut-outs and Caricature.”

In her talk, Himid will discuss a series of her works, such as Pandora’s Box, Dog Years, and Freedom and Change, on view at the exhibition "Niepodległe: Women, Independence and National Discourse". These works were made with a view to the effects that satire, humour and jest can have in the creation of art.

“In this talk I will speak about the series of painted wooden cut out men made by me in the early 1980s and the collage/cut-out work, from the same period, which developed from discussions about the potential effect this satirical series might have on audiences. I will ask questions about which method of production and display is the most effective and creative tool for change” – Lubaina Himid.
