Kehinde Wiley revealed his first public sculpture in Times Square, presented by Times Square Arts in partnership with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The work is a direct response to the confederate memorials across the US. The monumental sculpture features an African-American man dressed in Urban streetwear sitting on a horse in a striking pose. ‘Rumors of War’ is a powerful repositioning of young black men in our public consciousness, and engages the national conversation around monuments and their role in telling incomplete narratives in today’s contemporary world.
