If you are in Richmond Virginia, you must see Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic. It is the current curated art exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA). It will only be here until September 5th.
A must see of giant figurative paintings, sculpture, stain glass windows showcasing people of color. Inspired by 16th-19th century classical European style painters/paintings, Kehinde Wiley recreates historical poses in a contemporary way. The twist is in how he finds his subjects, they are everyday people he has encountered in the streets of New York, Sri Lanka, Israel, Haiti, Dakar…just to name a few places.
