OKCMOA is proud to present Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic on view summer 2017.
June 16, 2017 – September 10, 2017
Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic presents an overview of the artist Kehinde Wiley’s career including around sixty of his oil paintings, stained glass, and sculpture. The exhibition highlights the range of Wiley’s production, starting with examples of early paintings executed around the time of his 2001 residency at the Studio Museum in Harlem. These figurative canvases of African-American men, inspired by Wiley’s observation of street life in Harlem, mark the beginning of his focused exploration of the male figure.
Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic is organized by the Brooklyn Museum. Oklahoma City will be the final stop for A New Republic which will also travel to Texas, Washington, Virginia, Arizona, and Ohio.Submitted by Becky Weintz. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
