Begins June 26 at the Brooklyn Museum, New York City
Born and based in London but raised mostly in Lagos, Nigeria, Shonibare, 47, knows all about multiculturalism. Now his art ponders the paradox of identity in a multiculti world. His headless figures wear period costumes made from "African" textiles produced in the Netherlands. The cloth might not be the genuine article, but Shonibare is.
