Sonia Boyce (born 1962)

In the female artists series this week we take a look at two earlier pieces by Sonia Boyce, a British Afro-Caribbean artist.
She will be representing the UK at the Venice Biennale in 2022 and the first black woman to do so.

Sonia Dawn Boyce’s work involves a “variety of media such as drawing, print, photography, video, and sound. Her art explores the interstices between sound and memory, the dynamics of space, and incorporating the spectator. ” [2]
