Kehinde Wiley

Peintre de l'épopée - Painter of the Epic

ISBN: 9789461616203 (HB - E/ F)

Kehinde Wiley is an icon of contemporary American painting. He takes a critical look at the history of art by reinterpreting traditional representations of power. The exhibition at La Malmaison offers a selection of some thirty canvases and stained glass windows presenting, for the first solo exhibition in a French institution, the work of the leading artist of contemporary American art. Starting from a sociological observation, his canvases take up historical paintings to include those that have been forgotten. In his works Napoleon, the Three Graces and Saint Adelaide are modelled on young African-Americans. By giving back visibility to minorities, by questioning power relations and social issues contained in the paintings on the walls of museums around the world, Kehinde Wiley's works highlight and question the political dimension of art.
