This lavishly illustrated hardback catalogue accompanies Tate Britain’s exhibition of the work of Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Fly In League With The Night, the first major survey of the artwork of one of the most important and exciting painters at work today.more

Offering the most extensive overview of Yiadom-Boakye’s work to date, the exhibition book includes thematic essays explore in-depth discussion of the development of the artist’s practice since her graduation from the Royal Academy of Art, London, in 2003, presenting her artwork alongside her own writing and poetry. The publication also positions Yiadom-Boakye’s extraordinary creative output over the past twenty years within a wider history of portraiture and representation, with a particular focus on black subjects. Lynette Yiadom-Boakye (b.1977) is a British artist and writer acclaimed for her enigmatic portraits of fictitious people. Her paintings often allude to historic European portraiture – notably Thomas Gainsborough, Francisco de Goya, John Singer Sargent and Edouard Manet – yet in subject matter and technique her approach is decidedly contemporary. Through her focus on the depiction of imagined black characters Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings raise important questions about identity and representation. She was the 2012 recipient of the Pinchuk Foundation Future Generation Prize, was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2013, and was awarded the prestigious Carnegie Prize in 2018.
