YINKA SHONIBARE CBE RA: Windy Chair Exhibition Opening Drinks Carpenters Workshop Gallery

Cocktail Reception, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Free admission for Patrons

Carpenters Workshop Gallery is pleased to present one of the newest iterations of Yinka Shonibare’s CBE RA, Windy Chair.

Originally commissioned by Carpenters Workshop Gallery in 2014 for a special booth at Design Miami/ Basel curated by Jerome Sans, Windy Chair is a limited-edition series – each piece being unique in their Dutch-wax inspired patterns. The artwork is similar to Shonibare’s Wind Sculptures series which reimagines that traditional notion of sculpture by utilising materials such as fibreglass and bronze to depict billowing fabric caught in the wind.
