Culturally Curious: Kehinde Wiley: Color & Splendor

Image: Kehinde Wiley. Barack Obama (detail), 2018. Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.

Kehinde Wiley’s portrait of President Obama cemented his status in the contemporary art world as an artist that mixes Grand Manner portraiture traditions, intricate patterns and designs, and a vibrant, technicolor palette. His paintings, which most often depict contemporary African American subjects, examine visual codes for power and challenge expectations. This program explores the artist’s life and provides an overview of his works and inspiration.

February 13 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm This free VIRTUAL program is sponsored collaboratively by Canaan Town Library, the Converse Free Library, and the Plainfield Libraries. Click the link to register: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEldOCprT8rGdF3mczJnXgyTqQWC7OkqqGq
