The first major publication to explore the work of Sonia Boyce, one of Britain’s most exciting contemporary artists, including her newest and most ambitious work to date

The British artist Sonia Boyce (b. 1962) is celebrated for depicting intimate social encounters that explore interpersonal dynamics in drawing, photography, video, and installation, using images and sounds captured during the participatory art events she initiates. Boyce’s immersive new exhibition for the British Council commission at La Biennale di Venezia 2022 is her most ambitious to date—focussing on collaborative play as a route to artistic innovation and the importance of taking creative risks—both central tenets of Boyce’s exceptional artistic practice. Sonia Boyce: Feeling Her Way captures the drama and scope of this multisensory work as it unfolds throughout the British Pavilion. Boyce came to prominence as a key figure in the British Black arts movement of the 1980s and the authors’ texts connect this astonishing new work with Boyce’s preceding works and her abiding interests and concerns.
