Description

Public Art Fund

Invites you to celebrate the opening of

Yinka Shonibare MBE: Wind Sculpture (SG) I

Tuesday, March 6

4:30-5:30 p.m.

Doris C. Freedman Plaza

5th Avenue and 60th Street

Join Public Art Fund for hot beverages and sweet treats to celebrate Yinka Shonibare MBE and the unveiling of his new site specific installation, Wind Sculpture (SG) I. A new iteration of Shonibare’s majestic Wind Sculpture series, the work’s fluid form will reference both the untethered sail of a ship billowing in the wind and the vibrant patterns of textiles associated with the European colonization of West Africa. Shonibare, a self-described post-colonial hybrid, explores ideas of race, class, and the construction of cultural identity through his work.
