An Economy of Grace



“I am painting women in order to come to terms with the depictions of gender within the context of art history. One has to broaden the conversation.” 
— Kehinde Wiley

Art and fashion collide in this look at Kehinde Wiley’s new portraits of African American women. The models are women chosen from passersby in New York City and the clothes are couture from Givenchy, raising questions of patronage, art history and gender.

Join artist Kehinde Wiley, producer Jessica Chermayeff and editor Ana Veselic at the Opening Night Screening and Celebration.

Be part of the post-screening conversation on gender, portraiture, patronage and other topics explored in the work of Wiley led by Suzanne Boyd, Editor-in-Chief of Zoomer Magazine.
