Exclusively female portraits of women the American artist met on the streets of Dalston.

The American artist responds to novelist Charlotte Perkins Gilman's feminist text The Yellow Wallpaper with exclusively female portraits of women he met on the streets of Dalston.

Opening at the William Morris Gallery, 'The Yellow Wallpaper' is an exhibition of new portraits by American artist Kehinde Wiley. This will be the first solo exhibition of new work shown by Wiley at a public institution in the UK and also the first to feature exclusively female portraits. The works feature women that the artist met on the streets of Dalston and offer a visual response to American novelist Charlotte Perkins Gilman's acclaimed feminist text, The Yellow Wallpaper (1892).
