Title: Yinka Shonibare
Author: Millee Hill
Subtitle: In addition to the vibrancy and colour of the Yinka Shonibare exhibition Double Dutch, what struck me most forcefully was the way in which he used his art to explore and express the concepts of opposites; such as male and female, disabled and non-disabled, nature and culture, popular culture and high culture.

Article contains a photographic reproduction will the following credit: “The facing page shows Yinka in a flier to promote his exhibition. “This figure would have had a number of slaves and a number of interests in Africa, with me in this costume what I have tried to do is present a kind if inverse image.”
