Art:21 - Kara Walker

art:21

2003

Kara Walker's work explores the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through iconic, silhouetted figures. Walker unleashes the traditionally Victorian medium of the silhouette directly onto the walls of the gallery. In recent works, the Walker uses overhead projectors to throw light onto the walls and floor of the exhibition space, implicating the audience through their own shadows.

Kara Walker's is featured in the Season 2 episode “Stories” of the series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century”.
