Kara Walker

11 Oct 2013–5 Jan 2014

Overview

"We at Camden Arts Centre are Exceedingly Proud to Present an Exhibition of Capable Artworks by the Notable Hand of the Celebrated American, Kara Elizabeth Walker, Negress." --- This autumn, the acclaimed African-American artist, Kara Walker (b. 1969) brings to London her room-size tableaux of black cut-paper silhouettes and intricate shadow works which critically explore America's underlying racial and gender tensions. They address the highly-charged themes of power, repression, violence, history and sexuality. For her much-anticipated first major solo show in the UK, Walker will fill Camden Arts Centre’s galleries with the process of her art – from large scale graphite drawings and video to new cut paper pieces which will be produced on-site.
