Yinka Shonibare MBE: FABRIC–ATION
March 1, 2013
A new exhibition by Yinka Shonibare MBE opens at Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Saturday 2 March 2013. Taking place in three of YSP’s indoor galleries and the open air, FABRIC–ATION features over 30 vibrant works from the period 2002 – 2013 including sculpture, film, photography, painting and collage, with many works never before seen in the UK.
The exhibition is also the premiere of a new series of sculptures for the public realm. Two Wind Sculptures, over six metres in height and richly painted with Shonibare’s signature batik pattern, appear in the landscape like large, glorious handkerchiefs caught by the wind.
