yinka shonibare, MBE 'addio del passato' at scad museum of art, georgia, USA

27 October 2012
The SCAD Museum of Art presents "Addio del Passato," an exhibition of new works by artist Yinka Shonibare MBE. The exhibition will feature photographs from Shonibare's allegorical "Fake Death Pictures" series, sculptures, and the film "Addio Del Passato" ("So Closes My Sad Story") that collectively explore themes of desire, love, repression and power. These works weave together conceptual impressions of colonialism using a theatrical vocabulary and visual imagery that speak to history through the lens of the present.

The exhibition runs from 27 October 2012 to 27 January 2013.
