Kara Walker - Kara Walker: My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love Whitney Museum of American Art - Art - Review

Walker’s exquisite, implacable, loose-cannon retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art is about race first and last.

'Darkytown Rebellion.' Kara Walker. Cut paper and projection on wall. Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg. 4.3 x 11.3m. Walker's piece projects a nightmarish scene in which details are lost amongst the chaos and confusion of the silhouettes. To enhance the surrealism of the artwork, Walker plays psychedelic in the background. Furthermore, Walker is making a social commentary on the treatment and perception of African Americans through violent imagery of their historical past.
