The Life and Art of Yinka Shonibare with Christian Conrad


An artist with a Nigerian/British background, Yinka Shonibare creates artwork that explores cultural identity along with concept of globalization. Working with a disability--the paralysis of half his body--Shonibare uses assistants to help create his work. Shonibare’s sculptures are largely based on brightly colored, African-inspired fabrics. In addition, the artist uses historic British paintings in reinterpretations that follow a more contemporary narrative. Join us as we examine the work of this groundbreaking artist and discuss how cultural identity affects contemporary art.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
