Yinka Shonibare MBE at MCA
The Swing(after Fragonard), by Yinka Shinobare, 2001.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) presents the solo work of artist Yinka Shonibare MBE. The exhibition includes painting, sculpture, photography and film.
Yinka Shonibare's work discussed the issues of identity, global issues, social class and colonial history. His work in a way reflects his own bi-cultural background - born in England, raised in Nigeria and relocating back to London at 17. His "sculptures" are at once playful, elegant and colourful.
You can see Yinka Shonibare's work at MCA (Circular Quay West, Sydney) from 24 September 2008 to 1 February 2009.
