James Kalm is pleased to bring viewers the first museum retrospective of Kara Walker. This exhibition represents over fourteen years of work by this controversial artist. Known for her sexually charged images of Black stereotypes and an extravagant interpretation of slavery in the antebellum South, Walker's tableaus push many of society's hot buttons with her black and white focus on taboo subjects. At heart her work shows an exquisite draftsmanship and inventive use of positive and negative space, both visually and philosophically. Featuring comments by Jerry Saltz and Walter Robinson.
