Masterpiece Code Switch: The Subversive Art of Kehinde Wiley
Mar 30 2016, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The Gage Academy of Art presents Masterpiece Code Switch: The Subversive Art of Kehinde Wiley with panelists Gary Faigin of Gage Academy of Art; Frye Art Museum Educator, Negarra Kudumu ; and Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, writer, artist, and filmmaker.
American artist Kehinde Wiley has gained national prominence with his hyperrealist Proto-Baroque portraits in which he substitutes contemporary people of color for the royals and lordships we might expect to see in such compositions.
