Yinka Shonibare, MBE: Fabric-Ation
Fabric-Ation is one of the most extensive exhibitions to date on artist Yinka Shonibare CBE, featuring photography, sculpture, painting and film works from 2003 – 20013. This exhibition, held at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, premiered two important new outdoor works, Wind Sculptures, each measuring over six meters in height and richly painted with Shonibare’s signature batik fabric patter. The complexities of contemporary identity, dislocation, multiculturalism and revolution are all discussed within Shonibare’s practice and reflects his intellectual engagement with historical and contemporary events and their discourse.
