Kehinde Wiley: Saint Louis

Text by Simon Kelly, Hannah Klemm.

"Jacob de Graeff" (2018)†is reproduced from†"Kehinde Wiley: Saint Louis."

Published for the artist's solo exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum, this new series of paintings by Brooklyn-based painter Kehinde Wiley (born 1977) reenvisions the museum's holdings as a starting point for succinct observations about representation throughout the history of art. Through a process of street casting starting in 2017, Wiley invited residents he met in the neighborhoods of north St. Louis and Ferguson to pose for his paintings. The artist then created portrait paintings inspired by carefully chosen artworks in the museum's permanent collection. Wiley specifically chose Ferguson, Missouri, after the city became a flashpoint for nationwide protests touching on much larger issues of race, injustice and police violence. This catalog features 11 new paintings by Kehinde Wiley and essays by Simon Kelly, Curator and Head of Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at Saint Louis Art Museum, and Hannah Klemm, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Saint Louis Art Museum.

Kehinde Wiley challenges the history of art, empire and social domination

Kehinde Wiley challenges the history of art, empire and social domination

This week, we can think of no better artist to feature than Kehinde Wiley, whose bronze monument, Rumors of War, is currently on view in Times Square, en route to Richmond, Virginia, where it will stand among a group of problematic Confederate statues that it was designed to address. Pictured here is a detail from Charles I (2018), from the catalog to Wiley's recent exhibition at Saint Louis Art Museum, the models for which were cast from residents of north St. Louis and Ferguson, Missouri. "Wiley's conceptually ambitious portraits encourage us to question the hisories of domination adn exploitation within the discourses of empire, nation, state and city," curator Simon Kelly writes. "Ultimately, in reinscribing a sense of authority wihtin the hands of those historically marginalized, they affirm a hope for change. In the term used by the noted postcolonial theorist, Gayatri Spivak, they give power back to the 'subaltern.' In focusing on the African American population Ö†Wiley offers a message that art can have an important role in redeeming historical injustices and encouraging greater inclusiveness in the future." continue to blog
