June 16, 2017 - September 10, 2017
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is Proud to Present, KEHINDE WILEY: A New Republic.
The exhibition is an overview of the artist Kehinde Wiley’s career including around sixty of his oil paintings, stained glass, and sculpture.  The exhibition highlights the range of Wiley’s production, starting with examples of early paintings executed around the time of his 2001 residency at the Studio Museum in Harlem. These figurative canvases of African-American men, inspired by Wiley’s observation of street life in Harlem, mark the beginning of his focused exploration of the male figure.
