Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic

Advertising elaborate, vibrant, bright–colored art.


Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic was a major exhibition in 2015 at The Brooklyn Museum, raising questions regarding race, gender, and the politics of representation. The exhibition featured 60 paintings and sculptures. In order to allow the art itself to stand out without competition from the typography, a clean layout was crucial, while ensuring readability especially for the outdoor portion of the campaign. A series of print and outdoor, well as online animated ad units were launched, which embraced the organic and colorful character of the art itself.
