Alexandre Diop with the mentorship of Kehinde Wiley – LA PROCHAINE FOIS, LE FEU
“LA PROCHAINE FOIS, LE FEU” is the third Reiffers Art Iniatives art book recalling the 2022 edition of the mentorship program. This art book reveals the rich plastic dialogue between the mentor, Kehinde Wiley, and Alexandre Diop, a young French-Senegalese talent.
"The exhibition is the result of a meeting between the young artist Alexandre Diop and his mentor Kehinde Wiley, and their energetic and authentic collaboration that highlights Diop's powerful and monumental art, mid-way between painting and sculpture. An art that offers viewers a hard-hitting vision of our contemporary societies." — Paul-Emmanuel Reiffers
For this second edition of the Reiffers Art Initiatives mentorship program, the African-American artist Kehinde Wiley, renowned portraitist of president Barack Obama, chose to support the young French-Senegalese talent Alexandre Diop.
The resulting exhibition “La Prochaine Fois, Le Feu” at the Acacias Art Center last October is chronicled in this art book, revealing the rich plastic dialogue between a young talent from the French art scene and an international figure in contemporary art.
