The Contemporary Art Society is pleased to present The Artist’s Table with Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, which will take place on Monday 12 March 2018.

The Contemporary Art Society first acquired Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s work in 2013, buying To Tell Them Where It’s Got To (2013) for Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery. The organisation has also acquired ten etchings for The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery in Leeds that were first shown at her acclaimed exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in 2015.

Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings are predominantly figurative with raw and muted colours. With her expressive representations of the human figure, the artist examines the formal mechanisms of the medium of painting and reveals political and psychological dimensions in her works, which focus on fictional characters who exist beyond our world in a different time and in an unknown location. She paints figures that are intentionally removed from time and place, stating “People ask me, ‘Who are they, where are they?…What they should be asking is ‘What are they? ”

Her work is included in the permanent collections of a number of institutions, including the Tate Collection, London, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Miami Art Museum, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Nasher Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of African Art, Museum of Modern Art Warsaw.  Her most recent exhibition was at New York’s New Museum in 2017.
