A site-specific exhibition 'Yinka Shonibare MBE: Colonial Arrangements' will open in May at Morris-Jumel Mansion in New York. Elaborate, colourful, seductive and quizzical, Yinka Shonibare's renowned, textile-based art has been the focus of more than 50 solo museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide. The latest, Colonial Arrangements, will consist of new and existing work and is a fitting match, with the Mansion's lovingly preserved 18th- and 19th-century interiors set to serve as a baroque backdrop for Shonibare's extraordinary sculpture, including an entirely new, never-before-seen work commissioned by the Mansion.
It's the most ambitious art show in Morris-Jumel history, and it opens on 1 May with a two-tiered opening reception.
The exhibition runs from 1 May until 31 August 2015.
