. In Case You’ve Missed It See Kehinde Wiley’s New Suite of Presidential Portraits That Depict African Heads of State With an Ornate ‘Vocabulary of Power’ « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NET NEWS – These make up Wiley’s “A Maze of Power” series, which the artist has quietly been working on since 2012—years before he was tapped by President Obama. The new artworks are, in Wiley’s words, an effort to look at the African presidencies through the lens of Western European art history. “What happens when we use the language of aesthetic domination in the context of Africa in the 21st century?” the artist said in a short film he made to accompany the project.
