The William Morris Family Album, William Morris Gallery, London, England 2015

7th February - 7th June

The Gallery's first major commision: a Morris-inspired photographic exhibition by Turner Prize nominee Yinka Shonibare MBE.

The Victorian age, the legacy of Empire and the global textile trade are central themes in the work of Yinka Shonibare. In this new exhibition the internationally acclaimed British Nigerian artist turns his attention to William Morris. By inviting Waltham Forest residents to help recreate photographs of Morris’s family, he encourages viewers to reflect on the realities of equality in both Morris's time and our own.
