"At last: a catalogue which is so convincing that it makes a museum visit practically redundant." (die tageszeitung)
Kara Walker (*1969) is one of the most complex and prolific American artists of her generation. Over the past decade, she has gained national and international recognition for her room-filling tableaux depicting historical narratives haunted by sexuality, violence, and subjugation, but made using the genteel eighteenth-century art of cut-paper silhouettes. Over the years, the artist has used drawing, painting, colored-light projection, writing, shadow puppetry, and, most recently, film animation to narrate her tales. This exceptional publication features critical essays on the myriad social, racial, and gender issues present in Walker’s work as well as an illustrated lexicon of recurring themes and motifs in the artist's most influential installations. A thirty-six-page visual essay was created especially for this book by the artist. Exhibition schedule: Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, November 11, 2007–February 3, 2008   UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, February 17–April 11, 2008
