Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic Exhibition


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.

Matisse in His Time: Masterworks of Modernism from the Centre Pompidou, Paris

Henri Matisse, L'Algérienne, 1909

OKCMOA will be the exclusive North American venue for Matisse in His Time: Masterworks of Modernism from the Centre Pompidou, Paris, which presents, for the first time outside Europe, highlights from one of the world’s preeminent collections of Modern Art.

Henri Matisse (1869-1954) dominated the art world during the first half of the twentieth century. A prolific, curious, and social artist, he was at the heart of artistic debates throughout his career. In turn, Matisse was the leader of the Fauve movement, a critical observer of Cubism, disciple and friend of Impressionist painters like Pierre-Auguste Renoir, master of an academy, and a major rival to Pablo Picasso. He fundamentally altered the course of Modern Art and deeply affected the work of younger generations.

Matisse in His Time: Masterworks of Modernism from the Centre Pompidou, Paris, is organized by the Centre Pompidou—Europe’s leading museum of Modern and Contemporary Art—in collaboration with the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Visitors to the exhibition will experience the full scope of Matisse’s extraordinary career through nearly fifty of his paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints, dating from the late nineteenth century to after World War II. In addition to these masterpieces, Matisse in His Time also features fifty additional major works by many of the most celebrated artists of the twentieth century, including iconic works by Picasso, as well as Renoir, André Derain, Georges Braque, Joan Miró, and Amedeo Modigliani.
