"The future is the world's stage for Kehinde Wiley. One's always shifting between cultures now: it's about destabilization and Wiley wants to make sure you don't get too comfortable."
— Kisa Lala, The Huffington Post

New York-based artist Kehinde Wiley has carved out a place for the heroic African-American male figure in classical Western portraiture. In Jeff Dupre's intimate documentary Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace—which won the Jury Prize for Best Short Documentary at this year’s SXSW, the HBO Audience Award for Best Short at the 2014 Provincetown Film Festival, and the Goethe Director’s Award at the 2014 Reel Artists Film Festival—Wiley sets out to explore the female subject for the first time. For the film’s New York premiere, the acclaimed painter comes to BAMcinématek to discuss his work and give audiences a glimpse into his creative process.
