Closing soon | The @royalacademy's Summer Exhibition is one of our annual calendar highlights as it provides a chance to see hundreds (sometimes thousands) of works from a range of established and lesser-known artists in the RA's grand space. This year's exhibition includes works from renowned artists such as Rosemarie Trockel, Yinka Shonibare, Isaac Julien, Tomoaki Suzuki and Royal Academicians including Gilbert & George and @adjaye_visual_sketchbook. Make sure you catch this year's edition before it closes 6pm on Sunday. #RoyalAcademy #SummerExhibition

So earlier I was getting worried that I'd spent £15 on quite a boring RA Summer Show,  but then I found the #yinkashonibare room which was leagues ahead of the rest. Featuring some old favourites like @bobandrobertasmith, Tracey Emin, more Rosie Wylie and some new (to me) artists that I'm just looking up now!

The Wanderer (2006-07) by Yinka Shonibare MBE part of Cartwright Hall's own collection. 
The name refers to a pleasure boat which was converted to a slave ship in 1858 by 3 pro slavery Southern extremists (even though in US slave trading had been punishable by death since 1820) 487 Africans were crammed into the hold & 80 people died on the journey from Africa to Georgia.

Yinka Shonibare's "Planets in my head" a work about worlds of knowledge, yet only the Western canon was taught in the colonies. This sits at the entrance of Tropenmuseum permanent exhibition on Dutch colonialism in Indonesia ... a telling presage of the exhibition's own blindpots in its mappings and narrative of enslavement written from the imperial perspective...begging the question: can we learn in non-colonial terms? #yinkashonibare #tropenmuseum #dutchcolonialism

Apparently the world's largest ship in a bottle, created by Yinka Shonibare. The boat is a scale replica of Nelson's HMS Victory and comes complete with cannons and sails.

"Venus De' Medici"
By
Yinka Shonibare

There's a funny story to go with this sculpture, as told to me by a friend. 
Apparently, the original Venus sculpture that this is based off on has a very smooth ... Backside. Because apparently, it was sculpted so realistically that over the hundred years that it had stood, people have been ... Testing its realism. 😁

On this day, in 1962, British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare was born. His work explores cultural identity, colonialism and post-colonialism within the contemporary context of globalisation. #yinkashonibare #art #artist #video #contemporaryartist #british #nigerian #africa
Happy Birthday Yinka Shonibare MBE RA (b. 9 August 1962). Gallery VI @royalacademyarts 250th Summer Exhibition, curated by Shonibare is a riot of colour.  In showcasing works by artists from a wide variety of nationalities and backgrounds, Shonibare shines a spotlight on diversity and globilisation.

His unique sculpture, Venus de' Medici, is painted in African textile patterns and features a hand-coloured globe head.

Happy birthday to #yinkashonibare 🎉His work explores cultural identity, colonialism and post-colonialism. Nelson's Ship in a Bottle was commissioned in 2009 by the Greater London Authority for the #fourthplinth in #trafalgarsquare and was displayed from May 2010 to January 2012. Later in 2012, We launched a successful public appeal, alongside @royalmuseumsgreenwich, to acquire and permanently display the work outside the new Sammy Ofer wing of the #nationalmaritimemuseum where it is clearly visible across #greenwichpark 🌿🍃This campaign represents our first fundraising appeal for a contemporary work

Day 210-

Praise God!

Today at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. I got fascinated by the 'VENUS DE'MEDICI,' and I found out that his, 'unique firbreglas sculpture, hand painted with Dutch wax pattern, bespoke hand-coloured glob and steel baseplate was one of the most expensive sculptures with cost value of £162,000. The art works were made by Lagos-bred Nigerian UK-born- Yinka Shonibare, who later returned to the UK to study at the Royal Academy School. 
Most of his art works depicts Africa heritage!

"The question of identity in art is frequently avoided. But for Shonibare, artists cannot exclude themselves from outside variables no matter how hard they try. A work of art is made my someone standing in a particular place at a particular time, with his or her own set of identities."
