Wax Print: film screening and panel discussion

About

Surprised to learn from her Nigerian grandmother that ‘traditional’ African wax printed fabrics were a colonial invention made in the UK and Holland, British-born filmmaker and fashion designer, Aiwan Obinyan, sets out on a journey across four continents to trace the two-hundred year history of this iconic textile. From the intricate hand-crafted batiks of Indonesia to the cotton fields of North America and from European industrial mills to the bustling markets of West Africa, the story of how one fabric came to symbolise a whole continent, its people and their struggles (film 97min). Director Aiwan Obinyan will join a panel discussion after the screening which will explore the themes of Wax Print in relation to Yinke Shonibare’s exhibition.
