13 February 2019 to 26 August 2019


Yinka Shonibare In ‘Trade Winds’ Yinka Shonibare CBE brings together a series of artworks, including sculptures, photographs and a major installation, created between 2008 and 2018, which are connected through their use of Dutch Wax fabric. The exhibition takes as its starting point an appreciation for the fabric’s materiality and the conceptual as well as historical meanings associated with it, and provides a context for Shonibare’s ‘Wind Sculpture (SG) III‘ which is in the Norval Foundation’s Sculpture Garden.

In addition to being visually compelling, the Dutch Wax fabric in his practice invokes a serious consideration of how visual cultures evolve and create meaning within a given framework. Dutch Wax fabric has a complex history and this exhibition speaks to the larger complexity of how cultural objects are formed, often drawing upon a variety of sources, and shaped by historical, social and economic processes that defy simplistic or monolithic understandings of culture, which Shonibare has characterised as cultural ‘mongrels’.

Two well-known works that form part of the exhibition are ‘African Library’ and ‘Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters’.
