RCA BLK x Yinka Shonibare Residency

The Yinka Shonibare Foundation (YSF) was established in 2019 by the eminent British-Nigerian Artist Yinka Shonibare CBE RA. The Yinka Shonibare Foundation is a UK registered charity dedicated to facilitating international cultural exchange and supporting creative practices through residencies, collaborations and education projects. The artist residency offers 2 RCA BLK members (past or present) the opportunity to work on a new or developing project for one month at their residential space, G.A.S Foundation, in Lagos, Nigeria.

Join us in congratulating RCA Alumni, Remi Kuforiji and Graeme Smith, as our first artists in residence at the Yinka Shonibare Foundation in Lagos, Nigeria. We are incredibly excited to see the growth in their practices, and the opportunities that will come of this experience.
