Yinka Shonibare MBE: Colonial Arrangements

Elaborate, colorful, seductive and quizzical, Yinka Shonibare’s renowned, textile-based art has been the focus of more than 50 solo museum and gallery exhibitions worldwide. The Mansion’s lovingly preserved 18th- and 19th-century interiors served as a backdrop for Shonibare’s extraordinary sculpture, which included an entirely new, never-before-seen work commissioned by the Mansion.

“Yinka Shonibare MBE: Colonial Arrangements” is a Historic House Trust Contemporary Arts Partnership Program. Generously sponsors included the James Cohan Gallery, the New York State Council on the Arts and The Estée Lauder Companies, Inc.
