FEATURED ARTIST

LYNETTE YIADOM-BOAKYE

Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

The Hilton Als Series: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is an exhibition  of paintings by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye at the Huntington Art Gallery in Pasadema. The exhibition is second in a trilogy of shows on contemporary female British artists curated by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hilton Als. The installation of five of Yiadom-Boakye’s studies of fictional characters create a dialogue with The Huntington’s collection of highly formal 18th-century British portraits. Drawn from the world of found images and imagination, Yiadom-Boakye’s figures seem familiar but also mysterious. She typically finishes each painting in a single day, infusing the works with freshness and spontaneity, as if they were painted from life. The first show in the trilogy focused on the work of Celia Paul, and the final installment in 2021 will highlight the work of Los Angeles-based artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby. Exhibitions originate at the Yale Center for British Art. The show runs until May 11, 2020.
