      In Conversation: Joy Labinjo

      In Conversation: Joy Labinjo Wed 15 Jan 18.30 £6/£4.80* Booking essential Join artist Joy Labinjo as she discusses her work with Elena Crippa, Curator, Modern and Contemporary British Art, Tate. About Joy Labinjo: Joy Labinjo's recent large-scale paintings depict intimate scenes of contemporary family life: a group of people casually lying down on a sofa and chatting after a family gathering, a child and his grandmother posing together in front of the camera, or stolen moments before the official wedding portrait. Taking inspiration from family photographs, Labinjo transcribes her personal imagery into a bright and vibrant composition of colour and patterns. Having grown up in the UK with British-Nigerian heritage, Labinjo questions our idea of belonging and notion of identity. She invites us to rethink it as more fluid constructions taking into consideration both past and present, personal and collective subjectivities. *Online booking fee applies. Concessions include: Students, unwaged, aged 60+. BALTIC operates a no refunds policy.
