More Kara Walker

From Darkytown Rebellion

The recent show at the Whitney drew its usual overstuffed, overstimulated crowd to its Friday night bash this week. I shuffled through Walker's undiscovered history book, trying to read the silhouettes intimately with a bunch of strangers. Could have done with less graphic sexual content, but I appreciated nonetheless her bold perspective on the relationship between the oppressor and the recipient.
