Kehinde Wiley exhibit uses historic icons to expose systemic violence against Black people
Kehinde Wiley is best known for his distinctive presidential portrait of Barack Obama. But Wiley has spent most of his career painting vibrant portrayals of everyday Black men and women. A new exhibition of his work focuses on grief and mourning and also asks whose lives have value. Jeffrey Brown sat down with Wiley for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
