Kehinde Wiley @ The Studio Museum in Harlem Opened Today

The World Stage: Africa, Lagos ~ Dakar is Kehinde Wiley’s (b. 1977) first solo exhibition at The Studio Museum in Harlem and features ten new paintings from his multinational “The World Stage” series.

His images of urban young black men play with and transform classic portraiture aesthetics creating a highly stylized and interesting commentary on hip-hop culture and black masculinity.
