What’s On

There are two great exhibitions at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima)
OTOBONG NKANGA – “From Where I Stand”, open now, till 28 June. Otobongm Nkanga (pictured) is a Nigerian-born artist whose practice spans tapestry, drawing, photography, installation, video and performance. The exhibition explores the politics of land and its relationship to the body, histories of land acquisition and ownership, and the transformation of minerals and materials.
BLACK ARTS AND MODERNISM (23-29 March) – new narratives within MIMA’S collection via a collaboration with research group Black Artists & Modernism – presenting contributions by artists of African, Asian and Middle East and North Africa Region descent in the UK in the 20th and 21st centuries. The display is structured around questions that are key for any collection, explored through the perspective of the artwork: Where am I? Why am I here? Who am I? What am I doing? What’s next? Sonia Boyce’s important work She Ain’t Holdin’ Them Up, She’s Holdin’ On: Some English Rose (1986) has become a cornerstone of the collection (pictured).
