"Join this year’s Summer Exhibition Coordinator Yinka Shonibare and writer and broadcaster Afua Hirsch in this online event. They discuss his vision for the exhibition, the significance of reclaiming magic in art, and how an inclusive art world can engage with and value artists who have developed their practice in different ways...This year, Yinka Shonibare draws on the theme of ‘Reclaiming Magic’ to expand the conventional notion of art.
