KEHINDE WILEY’S WORLD STAGE: ISRAEL, AT BOISE ART MUSEUM

Boise Art Museum is proud to present Kehinde Wiley’s The World Stage: Israel, part of the artist’s series exploring the global black diaspora and the international phenomenon of urban youth culture. Paintings inĀ The World Stage: Israel are based on photographs the artist took of men of diverse religions and ethnicities living in Israel. The elaborate decorative backgrounds are based on historical Jewish designs and motifs. The portraits are complemented by a selection of Jewish textiles and works on paper, loaned by Ahavath Beth Israel synagogue in Boise, to provide examples of the types of traditional artifacts that inspired Wiley, including Torah ark curtains and a marriage contract.

The show is running through October 27, 2013.
