Public exhibition of Wind Sculpture VI. Open from 9am - 6pm daily

An installation of Yinka Shonibare's iconic Wind Sculpture in Lagos

This will be the first major Yinka Shonibare MBE(RA) exhibition in Nigeria and will see an installation of his iconic Wind Sculpture at the Ndubuisi Kanu Park in Lagos from November 2016 - January 2017.

The sculpture, made of batik design, echoes Shonibare’s imaginative treatment of the sails on Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle, his Fourth Plinth commission for Trafalgar Square which has now been installed outside the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich.

Following the installation, there will be a lecture for Visual Arts students and film screenings which will take place at Ndubuisi Kanu Park. 

You can sign up for the lecture to be held on 25 November and have a chance to chat with Yinka Shonibare MBE(RA) about his work.
