Kara Walker Prints

Art & Design Events...

  • Kara Walker Prints
    • "Widely known for her silhouetted wall installations, Kara Walker conveys a highly personal vision of race in America. Drawing from 19th century silhouette portraits, historical prints and other sources, Walker presents a violent and sexualized world where no one is spared the pain of racial conflict. This exhibition surveys her important work in a range of print media from the beginning of her career in the 1990s to the present."
