Kehinde Wiley Lecture 

When: Sat., Aug. 29 2015
Cleveland Public Library has partnered with the Cleveland Museum of Art to present a special lecture by world renowned contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley. Wiley will speak as part of the library’s Lockwood Thompson Dialogues series. Wiley will speak in the museum’s Gartner Auditorium at 2 p.m. today. Earlier this summer, the series brought legendary African American painter Barkley Hendricks to Cleveland to speak about his life and career. Wiley’s revisionist paintings incorporate contemporary, urban, young African American males into formal European portraiture. The result confronts the viewer with a necessity to reflect upon and challenge historical concepts of fine art (and much more). Seats are limited, register through the museum’s box office. Free.
