> DESCRIPTION

Passion and art collide for this Valentine’s Day-inspired talk with world-renowned artist Kehinde Wiley and Emmy-nominated actress CCH Pounder.

Kehinde Wiley is known for vibrant, large-scale paintings of young, urban, T-shirt clad men of color he encounters on streets around the world and renders in the heroic poses typical of classical European portraiture. His paintings are in the collections of over forty museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Hammer Museum, High Museum of Art, and Brooklyn Museum. His work has been the subject of numerous monographs including a comprehensive Rizzoli publication released in 2012.

CCH Pounder is an film and television actress. From 2002 to 2008, she starred as Detective Claudette Wyms in the FX Networks police drama The Shield. In 2009, she starred in James Cameron's film, Avatar as Mo'at. She currently appears on the TV series Warehouse 13 in a recurring role as Mrs. Irene Fredric. She is also active in charity and philanthropy work in Africa.  As one of the founders of Artists for a New South Africa, Pounder has energized awareness of post-apartheid and HIV/AIDS issues.

 Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Kehinde Wiley The World Stage: Israel .
