For the first major solo exhibition by Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) in Nigeria, 'Wind Sculpture VI', a six metre high fibreglass sculpture, is installed in Ndubuisi Kanu Park in Ikeja, Lagos. The project is part of the British Council's UK/Nigeria 2015-2016 season, which aims to build new audiences, create new collaborations and strengthen relationships between the two countries.
Shonibare, who was born in London and moved to Lagos as a child, is travelling to Nigeria for the unveiling of the sculpture. He is giving a talk to students and there is a screening of three films by Shonibare at the site of the installation in Ndubuisi Kanu Park: Odile, Addio del Pasato and Un Ballo in Maschera.
Wind Sculpture will be installed from 24 November 2016 until 31 January 2017.
