About

Join acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee, artist Kehinde Wiley, and illustrator Tatyana Fazlalizadeh for a special one-night-only conversation about the role storytelling plays in the visual arts. The discussion will explore representation and collaboration, presenting overlapping themes from the rich history of both filmmaking and painting. A Q&A with the artists will follow the conversation. 

Get a sneak preview of clips from Spike Lee's upcoming film, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (in theaters February 13), filmed in part at the Brooklyn Museum and featuring artworks by Wiley and Fazlalizadeh. The film explores appropriation and delves into cultural phenomenon at the intersection of cinema, painting, and illustration. Wiley's work will be on view starting February 20 in the exhibition Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic, raising questions about race, gender, and the politics of representation.
