A few weeks ago I posted about the Art Fund’s campaign to bring Shonibare’s Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle to the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Money has been coming in at an encouraging rate, but more’s still needed, so if you’d like to support the campaign, a good way to do it is to attend this event at the British Library, where a panel of experts will be discussing Shonibare’s work.
Find out more about the event from the Stephen Friedman gallery page. There’s also loads more information, competitions, videos, you name it, on the campaign page.
Wednesday 15th February, 6.30-8
Tickets are £15 (£7.50 for students/concessions) and the price includes a glass of wine. To book, call 0844 415 4151.
