Kehinde Wiley Named In The 2018 TIME 100

19 April 2018
Stephen Friedman Gallery congratulates Kehinde Wiley on being named in the 2018 TIME 100.

President Barack Obama's official portrait, by Kehinde Wiley is currently on display at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, Washington.

Michael Jackson's last commissioned portrait, 'Equestrian Portrait of King Philip II (Michael Jackson)', 2010, by Kehinde Wiley will open the exhibition ‘Michael Jackson: On the Wall' at the National Portrait Gallery, London (28 June - 21 October 2018).

The TIME 100 list, now in its fifteenth year, recognises the activism, innovation and achievement of the world's most influential individuals. TIME editors have said of the list in the past, "The TIME 100 is a list of the world's most influential men and women, not its most powerful, though those are not mutually exclusive terms. While power is certain, influence is subtle. As much as this exercise chronicles the achievements of the past year, we also focus on figures whose influence is likely to grow, so we can look around the corner to see what is coming."

The full list and related tributes appear in the April 30, 2018 issue of TIME, or you can click here to view online.
