Yinka Shonibare CBE RA in "Transformation" - Season 5 - "Art in the Twenty-First Century" | Art21

Art21 proudly presents an artist segment, featuring Yinka Shonibare CBE RA, from the "Transformation" episode in Season 5 of the "Art in the Twenty-First Century" series.

"Transformation" premiered in October 2009 on PBS.

“My work, all along, has been a critique of Empire,” says Yinka Shonibare CBE RA, adopting the honorific title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire, with willful irony, as part of his name. Shown in his London studio, Shonibare is working on his first series of drawings in twelve years, taking as his subject climate change. The artist is also on hand for the installation of a retrospective of sculptures—headless, “post-racial,” mannequins dressed in vibrant costumes—at the MCA Sydney.

Yinka Shonibare CBE RA was born in 1962 in London, England. Learn more about the artist at: https://art21.org/artist/yinka-shonibare
