Golden Lion Winner Sonia Boyce Joins Hauser & Wirth

Sonia Dawn Boyce, the British Afro-Caribbean artist and educator who won the Golden Lion at the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022, has joined Hauser & Wirth, one of the world's leading contemporary art galleries.

Boyce is the first black woman to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale, where she presented her work Feeling Her Way, a multimedia installation that explores the themes of memory, identity, and belonging through sound, touch, and movement.

Known for her interdisciplinary work that explores themes of race, gender, and identity, Boyce's work often features collage, photography, and video, and she is known for her use of sound and music.

She has been exhibited in major solo and group exhibitions around the world, including the Tate Modern, the British Museum, ICA London and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. She is also a professor of Black Art and Design at the University of the Arts London, and has received several awards including the Turner Prize and an OBE in 2020 for her services to art.

Hauser & Wirth is a Swiss-based gallery with locations in Europe, Asia, and North America. The gallery represents over 80 artists and artists' estates, including Mark Bradford, Louise Bourgeois, George Condo, Paul McCarthy, Pipilotti Rist, Lorna Simpson, and Rashid Johnson.

Boyce's first exhibition with Hauser & Wirth is expected to take place in 2025.
