Kehinde Wiley curates 'Self-Addressed'

Deitch Gallery, Los Angeles, California, USA

Jeffrey Deitch and Black Rock Senegal present Self-Addressed, an exhibition of self-portraits by contemporary African artists curated by Kehinde Wiley. For this landmark exhibition, Wiley has invited a selection of contemporary African artists living throughout the world to each produce a self-portrait. Together these portraits will present a new exploration of identity, perception, and self-regard within the global stage through the lens of figuration, exploring notions of perspective, authorship and control within acts of expression that directly address the self. This collection of self-portraits will offer an examination of the myth of the monolithic ‘Africa’ and an exploration of contemporary artists’ visual definitions of what it means to be ‘African’ or ‘of Africa.’ Jeffrey Deitch’s full sales commission will be donated to benefit Black Rock Senegal.
