For his latest series, ‘An Economy of Grace’, Nigerian-American artist Kehinde Wiley features women as his subjects - a first in the history of his works.
Currently on show at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York, Wiley teamed up with another current artistic force and the man behind the recent surge in success for French label Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, who designed the costumes for the subjects in all of Wiley’s pieces.
Kehinde Wiley guides us through his current exhibition at the Jewish Museum. Wiley is known for his portraits of young men of color that evoke the sensibility of classical European painting. His newest series is called “The World Stage: Israel.” Now on view are 14 portraits displayed alongside pieces from the museum’s permanent collection that influenced these works.
