Wiley is best known for his pulsating reinterpretations of the European Old Masters featuring African American men. But in this Emmy-nominated and SXSW Jury Prize-winning film, Wiley focuses on African American women as part of his exploration of image and status. As Wiley says, "I am painting women in order to come to terms with the depictions of gender within the context of art history."
