bp british art lecture: yinka shonibare

17 November 2010
Wednesday 17 November 2010, 18.30-20.00

Yinka Shonibare uses a variety of forms to explore and make visible the cultural influences of colonialisation. He considers himself ‘truly bi-cultural' and strives to open up debate about the social, cultural and political issues that shape our histories and construct identity. His works challenge assumptions about representation by playfully blurring the boundaries between stereotypically Western ideas about ‘high' art and traditional categorisations of ‘African art.'
