Party photos of the week: Reel Artists Film Festival’s opening night

‘I’m painting women in order to come to terms with the depictions of gender within the context of art history,” said Kehinde Wiley, a New York-based artist whose portraits done, in collaboration with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, were the subject of the Reel Artists Film Festival’s opening night documentary. Presented by the Canadian Art Foundation, the festival, now in its eleventh year, is North America’s only festival dedicated to documentaries about art. The four-day event kicked off with a prescreening reception at the TIFF Bell Lightbox where art enthusiasts and friends from the fashion community were treated to a cocktail or two before watching the exclusive world premiere of Kehinde Wiley: An Economy of Grace. As the man of the night, Mr. Wiley didn’t disappoint, as he revealed the lining of his rosy red suit was inspired by the art itself. parties@globeandmail.com
