This set of 30 postcards features a selection of artworks from the exhibition “Self-Addressed,” curated by Kehinde Wiley. For this landmark exhibition, Wiley invited contemporary African artists living throughout the world to produce a self-portrait.
Together these portraits present a new exploration ofidentity, perception, and self-regard within the global stage through the lensof figuration, exploringnotions of perspective, authorship and control withinacts of expression that directly address the self. Together, these portraitsoffer an examination of the myth of the monolithic ‘Africa’ and an explorationofcontemporary artists’ visual definitions of what it means to be ‘African’ or‘of Africa.’
Kehinde Wiley is a 2001-02 Studio Museum in Harlem Artist-in-Residence Alumni.
