On view at the Yale Center for British Art is an exhibition of works by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, the second exhibition in a series of three curated by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hilton Als. Selected by Als in collaboration with Yiadom-Boakye and the Center, this display of recent works by the London-based artist focuses on her portrait-like studies of characters drawn from the world of fiction, found images, and imagination. The exhibition will travel to the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, in San Marino, California.

The Hilton Als Series: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is on view at the Yale Center for British Art (1080 Chapel St, New Haven, CT 06510) from September 12 to December 15, 2019.
