LYNETTE YIADOM–BOAKYE IN CONVERSATION

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye paints “wet-on-wet,” completing by day’s end the figurative painting she started that morning. Her subjects are solitary black women and men—imagined, constructed portraits—rendered in oil on linen.

Join Yiadom-Boakye and New Museum artistic director Massimiliano Gioni for a public conversation on the occasion of the stunning exhibition LYNETTE YIADOM-BOAKYE: UNDER-SONG FOR A CIPHER, which is curated by Gioni and assistant curator Natalie Bell.
