“Most pieces have to do with exchanges of power, attempts to steal power away from others.” —Kara Walker

California-born, Georgia-bred Kara Walker is best known for her room-size black cut-paper silhouettes examining America’s racial and gender tensions–physical, emotional, personal, racial, sexual, and historical. Provocative themes and controversial representations evoke a myriad of reactions, from passionate  dialogue to indignant outrage. Read about one of her more notorious  exhibitions, Kara Walker: My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love.
