Kara Walker at the Whitney Museum

Kara Walker's new exhibit at the Whitney is featured in the Times today. She explores racism and history in these silhouettes. A modern tale from an old technique and artform. Above, “Gone, An Historical Romance of a Civil War as It Occurred Between the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart” (1994), made of cut paper; background, a video installation. NY Times article.
