One of the most significant young artists today, Kehinde Wiley is known for vibrant, large-scale paintings of young urban men, rendered in the self-confident, empowered poses typical of classical European portrait painting.

Part of a new series exploring the global diaspora, the works in The World Stage: Israel are based on photographs the artist took of men of diverse religions and ethnicities living in Israel. The detailed decorative backgrounds are based on Jewish ceremonial art. The exhibition includes 14 paintings and a selection of textiles and papercuts chosen by the artist from The Jewish Museum's collection.

Venue Description: Open Sat.-Tues., 11am-5:45pm; Thurs., 11am-8pm; Fri., 11am-4pm. Closed Wed. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 seniors, $7.50 students, under 12 free. Thurs. 5-8pm is "pay what you wish."
