‘That little glimmer of joy […] a glorious, golden-ended penis kaleidoscope’ – what the people are saying about our Yinka Shonibare MBE edition

The public launch oF KALEIDOSCOPE  by Yinka Shonibare MBE took place at Multiplied Art Fair where the artist was in conversation with Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery  in an event that became one of the highlights of the fair according to Milena Kotseva writing for The Huffington Post.

UPDATE: A video of the talk is now available via this link.

KALEIDOSCOPE  has certainly intrigued the public visiting the fair as well as press and art critics with editor Emily Gosling enjoying the departure from Shonibare’s ‘more politicised pieces and dived headfirst into erotic territory with these fabulous edition’.

Beyond the art world, British Fashion Industry icon, Sir Paul Smith featured Kaleidoscope in his personal blog ‘Paul Recommends’
