kehinde wiley at saint louis art museum, missouri, USA
'Kehinde Wiley: Saint Louis' is deeply informed by visits Wiley made to the city in 2017. Through a process of street casting, Wiley invited strangers that he met in neighborhoods in north St. Louis and Ferguson to pose for his paintings. The artist then created eleven original portraits that are inspired by carefully chosen artworks in the Museum's collection.
