Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art presents Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic, a retrospective of the artist’s prolific career featuring sixty paintings and sculptures. Kehinde Wiley’s work raises questions about race, gender, and the politics of representation by portraying contemporary African American men and women using the conventions of traditional European portraiture. A fully illustrated catalogue published by the Brooklyn Museum and DelMonico Books/Prestel accompanies the exhibition. Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic is organized by the Brooklyn Museum and Eugenie Tsai, the John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum. Oklahoma City will be the final stop on the tour that has included Texas, Washington, Virginia, Arizona, and Ohio.
