Re-imagine America
A Centennial Commission by Yinka Shonibare MBE
on view through
11.09.2014
In the opulent interior setting of the
Victorian Ballantine House, Yinka Shonibare
has staged an imagined scene of a dinner
party. Originally created in 2009 in honor
of the Newark Museum’s centennial, the
animated body language of the guests
suggests a moment in which proper
Victorian etiquette has been cast away.
This indulgent celebration of prosperity tips
toward misbehavior and even debauchery.
Enjoy this magnificently conceived art
installation on view for a limited time.
