Kehinde Wiley's new republic

Look closely at Kehinde Wiley’s paintings: they may remind you of something. Since the early 2000s, Wiley has been painting portraits of young black people in the traditions of European portraiture. His sitters are often strangers he meets in cities around the world, with whom he works to select historic paintings as models for new portraits. (He calls the process “street casting.”) At the Brooklyn Museum, “Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic” (20 February-24 May) highlights 60 of these works, including a new stained glass piece and a new sculpture.
