Yinka Shonibare Foundation
Guest Projects Digital
As we launch our 2023 programme, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank the incredible residents whose commitment and enthusiastic participation lie at the heart of everything we've been able to achieve in our inaugural year. Their drive, energy, ambition, and ideas continue to inspire us and have been invaluable in helping us shape Guest Artists Space.
Queering the Subversive Dye: Thoughts on Textile and Gender was the second event in a two-part series hosted by Miriam Bettin to mark the end of her residency at G.A.S. The event revolved around a conversation with Matthew Blaise, Dolapo Osunsina, Adebayo Quadry-Adekanbi, Zee and Adeju Thompson that was focused on textiles and gender whilst touching on questions of spiritual practices, pre-colonial queer politics, gender identities and performance, as well as degendering fashion.
We managed to generate some incredible coverage of our International Launch with more exciting stories still to be published. Here is a taster of some of our favourite articles as we close off the year and look forward to more exciting projects in 2023.
Your generous contributions support the Foundation’s distinctive interdisciplinary residencies, research, education programmes and public events.
