El Futuro del Pasado at Alcalá 31 in Madrid is the first solo exhibition of Nigerian-British artist Yinka Shonibare’s work in Spain. The show features a series of photographs based on Francisco de Goya’s etching “El sueno de la razón produce monstruos” (“The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters”) from his “Los Caprichos” series. Also on display: the work Shonibare did for the Fourth Plinth in London; “The Big Three”, a group of sculptures representing the managers of the three major American car companies; the film “Un Ballo in Maschera”; the first group of collages made by Shonibare; and “Cannonball Heaven”, an installation produced especially for this show. The exhibition has been curated by Octavio Zaya.
