YINKA SHONIBARE CBE. END OF EMPIRE

22 May 2021 10:00 - 12 September 2021 18:00

One of the most prominent and versatile artists working in the UK today, Yinka Shonibare CBE (London, UK, 1962) makes work that scrutinizes the legacy of Western colonialism and its lingering traces.

The British-Nigerian artist rose to renown with installations featuring headless life-sized figures in historic costumes tailored out of colorful batik-dyed fabrics. His multimedia oeuvre probes constructions of race, class, and national and cultural identities through a sustained study of the historic interdependencies between Africa and Europe. The retrospective gathers ca. sixty works from the past thirty years.
