#MANday Watch: Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace, Presented by PBS

Kehinde Wiley is one of the most prominent portrait painters of our generation, focusing his work on the African-American male. We see his works in art institutions throughout New York City, and the world, and in his recent PBS Arts presentation, we see the road to one of his most recent exhibitions, An Economy of Grace, which was held at New York’s Sean Kelly Gallery.

The exhibition was Wiley’s first using Black women as subjects; exploring sexuality and beauty in the 21st century. You may view the entire special over at PBS Video.
