Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace
Directed by Jeff Dupre—In Person

Sunday, July 22, 1 pm

Free

Known for his vibrant, larger-than-life reinterpretations of classical portraits featuring black and brown young men, New York-based visual artist Kehinde Wiley has turned the practice of portraiture on its head—and in the process, has taken the art world by storm.

Wiley recently embarked on an exciting new project: a series of classical portraits of African American women—something he’s never done before. The film, Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace, documents the project as it unfolds, tracking Wiley’s process from concept to canvas, and coming to know the women whom he selects to paint. 2014, U.S., video, 38 minutes. Recommended for 13+.

Screened in conjunction with the Louisville Film Society’s Flyover Film Festival. Kehinde Wiley’s work is currently on view in the exhibitions Breaking the Mold: Investigating Gender at the Speed Art Museum and Dress Up, Speak Up: Costume and Confrontation at the 21c Museum Hotel.
