British Council unveils 'Wind Sculpture' by Yinka Shonibare MBE in Lagos, Nigeria
Tuesday 1 November 2016 to Tuesday 31 January 2017
This will be the first major Yinka Shonibare exhibition in Nigeria and will see an installation of his iconic Wind Sculpture at the Ndubuisi Kanu Park in Lagos.
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 is permanently 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.
Wind Sculpture will be installed from 1 November 2016 until 31 January 2017.
