Installation in progress - Yinka Shonibare MBE opens this weekend
Monday 23 February 2009
Yinka Shonibare MBE opens at Auckland Art Gallery on Saturday 28 February. So, with less than a week to go the installation of the exhibition is in full swing.
Here are a couple of photos of the installation, which started this morning, of Black Gold II which is a HUGE work.
Black Gold II consists of black acrylic paint, and 25 dutch wax painted cotton canvases. Overall it is over 3 metres tall and over 6 metres wide. Hopefully if we can get over there tomorrow and take another photo to see how they are getting on.
