Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic

Recommended

Seattle Art Museum Downtown
Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through May 8 2016

  Save Event

Kehinde Wiley has a strong take on appropriating and subverting the old masters. A New Republic comes to Seattle via Texas from the Brooklyn Museum, and delves deep into ideas about portraiture. By putting young, black men and women into the poses and styles of 18th century European rulers and aristocrats, he makes deft observations about culture and presentation, as well as art and appropriation.
