Kenise Barnes Fine Art
Craven Contemporary stands against racial injustice and inequality and is pleased to announce a pop-up space in Kent Barns seeking support for Black Lives Matter. The pop-up will feature a single work by renowned African American artist Kehinde Wiley, his ‘Portrait of Kemardo Douglas’, 2014. The work is being seen in public for the first time. It is an opportunity to see a fantastic piece of art and to pause and reflect. The gallery invites visitors to consider making a donation to Black Lives Matter at Black Live Matter
Here are the essentials for the pop-up:
With the health and safety of friends and supporters of the gallery foremost, occupancy in the pop-up will be limited. I will be wearing a mask and ask that you do the same. Gloves and hand sanitizer will also be provided.
Craven Contemporary looks forward to seeing you at the pop-up to support this important cause.
IMAGE: KEHINDE WILEY ‘Portrait of Kemardo Douglas’, 2014. Oil on panel. 16” by 12”. Not for sale.

The group show features text based works by leading artists including David Shrigley, Jonas Wood, Hank Willis Thomas, Deborah Kass and others. Some of the works are fun and some more political but, all are apropos of the times we find ourselves in. For more information about Craven Contemporary click on the link.
