Today, Kehinde Wiley debuts “An Economy of Grace” at Sean Kelly Gallery. The show features portraits of black women, a first for the painter.
"This series of works attempts to reconcile the presence of black female stereotypes that surrounds their presence and/or absence in art history, and the notions of beauty, spectacle, and the ‘grand’ in painting," Wiley says.
Up from May 5th-June 16th.
