      EVENT DETAILS
      Yinka Shonibare MBE: Guns Drawn

      Yinka Shonibare’s works in the Davis collection exemplify his theatrical depictions of beauty and violence, and his exploration of the inheritances of colonialism in our contemporary, globalized world. Born in London and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, he is a multimedia artist and MBE (member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire), and is best known for using wax print cloth to represent historic cultural and economic interdependence. Shonibare also has long plumbed a rich palette of other media and symbols.
