Masterpiece Code Switch: The Subversive Art of Kehinde Wiley

Mar 30 2016, 7:30 pm9:00 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.

Join us as we discuss the racial, social, and artistic issues these provocative paintings raise. This discussion coincides with the Seattle Art Museum‘s exhibition Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic.

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.
