Room 3 in the British Pavilion featuring performers Jacqui Dankworth and Sofia Jernberg

Sonia Boyce was born in London, UK in 1962, where she continues to live and work. In 2019, the artist received an OBE for services to art in the Queen’s New Year Honours List, as well as an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal College of Art.

Sonia Boyce’s British Council Commission, for the British Pavilion at the Biennale Arte Venice has drawn record crowds during preview week and runs until 27 November 2022.

Feeling her Way focuses on the vocal experimentation of five outstanding Black female musicians as they embody feelings of power, freedom and vulnerability. Awarding the accolade, the jury said: 'Sonia Boyce proposes … another reading of histories through the sonic. In working collaboratively with other Black women, she unpacks a plenitude of silenced stories.'
