Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA) joins Kobena Mercer, Professor, History of Art and African American Studies, Yale University, for a conversation. This event coincides with a display of Shonibare’s works on view at the Center, entitled Yinka Shonibare MBE (RA). It is made possible by the Andrew Carnduff Ritchie Fund with additional support from the Museum of Arts and Design and the Smithsonian Institution.

The Andrew Carnduff Ritchie lecture series, which is jointly sponsored by the Yale Center for British Art and the Yale University Art Gallery, brings distinguished members of the international visual arts community to the university. These lectures are free and open to the public, honoring Ritchie’s belief that the art museum serves as a gathering place for all members of the community.
