Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: Haiti
Roberts & Tilton - Culver City, CA
As part of Kehinde Wiley’s ongoing The World Stage exhibition series, the artist is showing his work that focuses on the people and culture of Haiti at Roberts & Tilton gallery in Culver City this month. The exhibit features 12 paintings of women he recruited via his own organized beauty pageants, which are prevalent in Haitian and Caribbean culture. He then painted them in a European master-style — a nod to the past French and Spanish colonization of the area — surrounded by a background filled with vegetation native to the country. You can see Kehinde Wiley’s paintings in this exhibit until October 25.
