About this Event

The William Morris Gallery is pleased to announce Kehinde Wiley: The Yellow Wallpaper, an exhibition of new portraits by American artist Kehinde Wiley (b.1977, Los Angeles) opening in February 2020. This will be the first solo exhibition of new work shown by Wiley at a public institution in the UK and also the first to feature exclusively female portraits. The works offer a visual response to American novelist Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s acclaimed feminist text, The Yellow Wallpaper (1892).

‘The Yellow Wallpaper is a work of literary fiction that explores the contours of femininity and insanity. This exhibition seeks to use the language of the decorative to reconcile blackness, gender, and a beautiful and terrible past.’
