Looking forward to reading the exhibit catalog after having just seen the artworks this weekend. Great images, stories explain a lot about the artist.

Would recommend for anyone interested in Wiley's work and the historical pieces he so skillfully reimagines. I have enjoyed Mr Wiley's paintings for years now. Every time I'm in Brooklyn, I have to stop in at the museum so I can see "Napoleon..." So, I was especially excited when my roommate brought this book home and left it on the coffee table. I don't read a lot of art criticism, but I found this book to be accessible and engaging, just like Mr Wiley's artwork. Wiley's artwork is brilliant and mesmerizing, and I can understand how he has been countlessly defined as a wunderkind. While I appreciate the size of this volume, the quality of the reproductions, and the organization of Wiley's work in chronological order (from "Conspicuous Fraud Series #1 Eminence" (2001)"Saint Gregory Palamas" (2014), I would seek criticism and more information about him and his work elsewhere. Great showcase of his works, plenty of examples on good stock. Several essays also explore his work. What a wonderful book which showcase all of the painting of Kehindey Wiley in updating some of the most popular paintings of past using today's models. I'm obsessed with Kehinde Wiley, and this book allowed me to indulge my obsession. Looking at his artwork alone is a transformative experience, but reading the words of those who have studied it on a deeper level is truly enlightening.
This book was vital because it awakened my critical senses. I found myself formulating essay titles and theses, furiously asking questions, and copying thoughtprovoking quotes while I worked my way through the written portion of this book. I don't read much art criticism, but A New Republic makes me want to start. (And I may start by sifting through the bibliography from this book. Several critics quoted lead me to suspect I could write an essay titled "'Difficult Subject Matter': ThinlyVeiled Racism in the Criticism of Kehinde Wiley's Art," but I need some more evidence before I can prove that.)
I had to sub for a class while I was reading this book, so I brought it with me as an impromptu lesson plan, and the kids loved it. I asked them to list words that came to mind when they saw Wiley's paintings. They made an extensive list: power, royalty, tough, brave, flexin, strong, warrior, confident, men, lead, black, different, show out, pure, proud. I'm going to buy my own copy of this book and display Wiley's artwork in my classroom; my kids deserve to feel every one of those adjectives every single day. This beautifully produced book was brought together on the occasion of a retrospective exhibit of Kehinde Wiley's work at the Brooklyn Museum in 2015. The plates are arranged chronologically and many are accompanied by short essays by a wide variety of art historians, art critics, artists, and even poets that contextualize and respond to Wiley's work. In addition, two longer essays start out the book by giving us an introduction to the exhibit and an overview of Wiley's work and its reception. I was mostly familiar with Wiley from his portrait of President Obama in the National Portrait Gallery, and just slightly aware of his other paintings. Spending some time with this work and reading the accompanying reflections gave me a deeper appreciation for what Wiley is doing and how exactly he is doing it. I am jealous of anyone who has gotten to see his work in person, especially all in context at one of his openingsthey sound wild! This was given to me as a gift by a friend who apparently has a sixth sense for what will hit me just right (thanks, Des <3 ). Looking at art has always been one of my techniques for resetting my brain. I hope that someday I get to do that in person again, but until then, this book will help quite a bit.
