Kehinde Wiley - The Yellow Wallpaper
'Kehinde Wiley: The Yellow Wallpaper’ at William Morris Gallery is the artist’s first solo show in a UK museum.
Featuring six new large-scale female portraits, the exhibition offers a visual response to American novelist Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s acclaimed feminist text, 'The Yellow Wallpaper', 1892.
Wiley explains, "‘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."
