Library Shelf Location 18.SHON
Publication Date 2019

In this book, British Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare (born 1962) challenges conceptions of "good taste," presenting works from the Arts Council Collection—from sculpture and painting to wallpaper and handbags—that provocatively oppose the anti-decorative stance of Adolf Loos' 1908 Ornament and Crime.
