Kehinde Wiley
Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY
Wiley’s signature portraits of everyday men and women riff on specific paintings by Old Masters, replacing the European aristocrats depicted in those paintings with contemporary black subjects, drawing attention to the absence of African Americans from historical and cultural narratives. The exhibition includes an overview of the artist’s prolific fourteen-year career and features sixty paintings and sculptures. - thru May 24 #art #culture #lifestyle #nyc #lifestyleblogger
