Kehinde Wiley: The Yellow Wallpaper

By William Morris Gallery

In 2020 the William Morris Gallery exhibited six portraits by Kehinde Wiley featuring women and girls that the artist met on the streets of Dalston, East London. The portraits offer a visual response to the Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s acclaimed feminist short story, ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ and can be contextualized within the wider narrative of Wiley’s portraits and paintings by European ‘old masters’. See the portraits at Google Arts and Culture.
