'kehinde wiley: memling’ travels to taft museum, ohio

11 July 2014
‘Kehinde Wiley: Memling' travels to the Sinton Gallery at Taft Museum in Ohio. Organised by Phoenix Art Museum the exhibition is the latest series by American artist Kehinde Wiley.

The exhibition features eight paintings by Wiley based on the work of Hans Memling (1430-1494), a Flemish master of the Northern Renaissance. Wiley's paintings reinterpret Memling's works, replacing the austere 15th-century figures with the bold, engaging subjects of men in contemporary street clothes. These small-scale, highly detailed portraits address the image and status of young men of color.

The exhibition runs from 11 July until 5 October 2014.
