This paperback catalogue accompanies the 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. Lavishly illustrated, it offers the most extensive overview of Yiadom-Boakye’s work to date. The exhibition book includes thematic essays and 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.
