Sonia Boyce

2024 Exhibition Artist

Sonia Boyce DBE RA (born 1962) is a British interdisciplinary artist and academic working across film, drawing, photography, print, sound, and installation.

A key figure in the Black Arts Movement in the early 1980s, Boyce continues to address issues of race and gender in Britain. Her recent work explores the intersection of art and social practice. She utilizes performance and audio-visual elements, encouraging collaboration, improvisation, and participation to blur the lines between artist and
audience.

In 2024, the artist received an DBE for art services in the King’s New Year Honours List and holds Honorary Doctorates from the Royal College of Art, The Courtauld, and Birmingham City University, UK. Her work appears in the collections of many British and international  museums, including the TATE in London, Saastamoinen Foundation in Helsinki, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
