Kehinde Wiley Film Series: An Economy of Grace
Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace, directed by Jeffrey Dupre, documents Wiley’s first body of work centering on the female figure. Inspired by the aristocratic tradition of fashion as a mark of class distinction, Wiley collaborates with Riccardo Tisci, Fashion Designer at the French couture firm Givenchy, who designs luxurious flowing gowns worn by each of the women depicted. As seen in 18th-and 19th-century European paintings, these portraits of leading women in society embody absolute grace and glamour.
