Hereford Cathedral and Meadow Arts will welcome internationally acclaimed artist Yinka Shonibare to Hereford on Thursday 24 January as he opens his latest exhibition, Creatures of the Mappa Mundi.


Yinka Shonibare, who has recently been awarded a CBE in the New Year’s Honour’s List, was a Turner prize nominee in 2004 and created ‘Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle’ for the Fourth plinth at Trafalgar square in 2010 amongst many other notable commissions.

Shonibare will give a talk in the cathedral nave on Thursday 24 January to launch his new artwork, Creatures of the Mappa Mundi which has been commissioned by Meadow Arts. Interviewed by broadcaster and writer Francine Stock, he will discuss the inspiration for this new commission for Meadow Arts which has been inspired by one of Hereford Cathedral’s treasures, the Mappa Mundi.

Inspired by the ‘strange creatures and alien races’ of the famous Medieval world map, the quilt artworks have been made with diverse groups of Herefordshire people including groups from the Courtyard Hereford’s Creative Ageing project; Diploma in Art & Design students from Hereford College of Arts; Rose Tinted Rags and charity for disabled people, Echo; young people from SHYPP (Supported Housing for Young People Project) and Hereford River Carnival.
