As Yinka Shonibare MBE ‘s Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle approaches the end of its voyage on Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth, the artist makes an appearance as part of Iniva’s Significant Voices series. Shonibare is famous for his historically-inspired sculptures, which use African textiles to foreground issues of identity, connectedness and globalisation, all tied together with a critical take on empire. Here, he’ll be talking about his work and postcolonial Britain’s cultural legacy with writer, broadcaster and cultural commentator Ekow Eshun. Tickets and further details here – booking advised.
