Kehinde Wiley launches Black Rock Artists Residency, Dakar, Senegal

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Kehinde Wiley's new multi-disciplinary artist-in-residency program, Black Rock Senegal.

Located on the westernmost point of continental Africa, Black Rock will bring together an international group of visual artists, writers, and filmmakers to join Kehinde Wiley at his new artists compound. Black Rock aims to support new artistic creation by promoting conversations and collaborations that are multigenerational, cross-cultural, international, and cross-disciplinary. Named for the volcanic rocks that blanket its shoreline, Black Rock takes its physical location as a point of departure to incite change in the global discourse around Africa in the context of creative evolution.
