Tina Ramos Ekongo: Black Queens at Castlefield Gallery New Art Spaces: Warrington

Posted on 18 February 2022

Launching on International Women’s Day 2022, artist Tina Ramos Ekongo presents a series of portraits of key figures from the Black British Arts movement of the 1980s and 1990s, including Lubaina Himid, Sonia Boyce, Claudette Johnson, Marlene Smith and Maud Sulter. By depicting them in a style that references both 16th century British royalty and tribal rulers from the African continent, Tina’s work pays tribute to the women who challenged and redefined the British art scene.
