Shonibare will work with The Novium Museum to create Inventive Factory art spaces throughout the museum inspired by local inventor Colin Pullinger, whose own Inventive Factory was based in Selsey. Proposals will be shortlisted by Yinka Shonibare MBE who will also be participating in the event.
The mini-festival of creative arts will explore Shonibare's favourite theme of identity. It will be a collaborative event reaching out across the local community involving students, artists and community groups to create an alternative museum collection.
Museums at Night takes place on Friday 30 October from 4pm until 10pm.
