Yinka Shonibare, MBE is to feature in the group exhibition ‘Victoriana: The Art of Revival' at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London.

From the macabre to the quaint, the sensational to the surreal, ‘Victoriana: The Art of Revival' is the first ever exhibition in the UK to offer a major examination of Victorian revivalism in all its forms.

Featuring graphic design, film, photography, ceramics, taxidermy, furniture, textiles and fine art, this multi-media show explores work inspired by the 19th century and created over the last 20 years, highlighting the ongoing influence of the Victorian age.

‘Victoriana: The Art of Revival' brings together 28 major contemporary artists who encapsulate the many forms and motivations of modern takes on Victorian style. These also include Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, Dan Hillier, Paul St. George, Rob Ryan, Kitty Valentine and Jake and Dinos Chapman.

The exhibition, curated by Sonia Solicari, runs from 7 September to 8 December 2013.
