yinka shonibare MBE in 'la vida es esto' at da2, salamanca, spain

8 October 2015
Yinka Shonibare MBE is included in 'La vida era esto?, Progreso, libertad, auto realización' curated by Paco Barragán that will take place in DA2, Salamanca, Spain. Shonibare's early photographic series 'Dorian Gray' is included in the exhibition.

By assuming the role of Dorian Gray himself, Shonibare extends his preoccupation with the dandy that first manifested itself in his previous work, Diary of a Victorian Dandy (1998) where he also featured in the photographs. Shonibare identifies himself with the ‘outsider' tradition of the dandy embodied by Oscar Wilde.

The exhibition runs from 8 October 2015 until 31 January 2016.
