Tate Britain
Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Fly In League With The Night

Tate Britain, one of Deutsche Bank's ArtCard partner museums, is hosting the first British retrospective of the artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Born in London in 1977, the Londoner with Ghanaian roots is considered one of the most important representatives of figurative painting today. Her paintings exclusively show dark-skinned men and women, thus challenging the accepted norm of Western European figurative painting.

Yiadom-Boakye’s figures move in reduced, yet psychologically charged and mysterious settings. Although these settings seem strangely familiar, it is left completely open whether they allude to films, photographs, historical or modern paintings, or theater performances. A must for every painting enthusiast.
