CHINA

The World Stage

    The World Stage China continues Wiley’s investigation into the blurry divide between urban/highbrow and traditional/contemporary representation. These paintings evolved as a result of an invitation to Wiley to start a studio in Beijing. In his discovery of historic propaganda posters from China’s Cultural Revolution, Wiley found a correlation between the ways in which African American identity has and continues to be manufactured and manipulated by both the media and society, and how Chinese national identity was distorted during the Maoist era.
