        The Exotic Right in Front of You | Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace

        Follow each step of Kehinde Wiley's process from casting models on the streets, to creating finished images. Wiley says "Sometimes the exotic can be right in front of you…the way that I have seen black people being portrayed in this country feels very strange and exotic because it has nothing to do with the life that I've lived." Here Kehinde introduces the idea that foreign images are not always from far away countries, but can be very close to home. In Kehinde’s work he does not reject or affirm societal portrayals of black people, but investigates these images as if they were foreign and asks viewers to do the same.
