Yinka Shonibare (b. 1962), a Nigerian-English artist and Turner Prize nominee who has had major international solo exhibitions, likes to unite different worlds in a single space because he himself is a product of multiculturalism. His reflections on identity and memory, often rendered as wax models of middle-class Victorian figures represented as headless mannequins, are instantly recognizable. Here, models, sculptures, photographs, and videos by Shonibare are exhibited in rooms at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco. HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover, daughter of the late Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco, contributes a foreword.

Marie-Claude Beaud is director, and Béatrice Blanchy is a curator, at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco. Nathalie Rosticher Giordano is a former cultural programmer at the Grimaldi Forum.
