YINKA SHONIBARE MBE : ...AND THE WALL FELL AWAY

  • STEPHEN FRIEDMAN GALLERY 25-28 Old Burlington Street London, England, W1S United Kingdom

Opening for Frieze week in October 2016, Yinka Shonibare MBE presents his sixth solo exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery titled '...and the wall fell away'. 


The show marks a pivotal moment in the artist's practice with the complete absence of the Dutch wax Batik textiles for which he is known. Shonibare removes the fabric altogether and employs the batik designs in new forms; mural painting, bronze sculpture, screen prints on canvas and the appropriation of classical sculpture.
