Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present the second exhibition at the gallery by renowned American artist Kehinde Wiley. This marks an important moment in Wiley's career, as he departs from the portrait style for which he is celebrated to explore the atmospheric and romanticised tradition of maritime painting. 'In Search of the Miraculous' includes nine new paintings and Wiley's first three-channel artist film 'Narrenschiff'.
'Narrenschiff' will premiere at the British Film Institute on London's Southbank on Wednesday 22 November, 8:35pm
After the premiere of the new film, the artist will be in conversation with Ekow Eshun. See here for more details.
