Kehinde Wiley and Black Rock Senegal Announce New Benefit Collaboration

Kehinde Wiley is pleased to announce the newest product to benefit Black Rock Senegal.

The Conspicuous Fraud Series #1 (Eminence) Notebook draws inspiration from an artwork by Kehinde Wiley of the same name, made by the artist while he was in residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 2001. This early work is part of a larger series which emphasizes and explores the beauty of natural black hair. Twisting and turning in the sky, the contours of the subject’s oversized afro turn into clouds, confusing traditional compositional relationships between subject and background.

All proceeds support Black Rock Senegal, a multi-disciplinary artist in residence program located in Dakar, Senegal, founded by Kehinde Wiley.  For additional information, please visit
