Deborah Rigby has organised an amazing event that's taking place in Yinka Shonibare's studio near Bethnal Green in Feb. Maybe some of you know art collectors and enthusiasts that would be keen to support this night in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières. If so please spread the word. Tickets are a piffling £125 and the good news is - everyone is a winner.
This art and music fundraising event is for Médecins Sans Frontières. Yinka Shonibare MBE RA has kindly given the use of his project space at his London Fields Studio on Saturday 27th February 2016.
