Prolific artist, and Banksy-homage payee, Kara Walker will be kicking off her new show at the Domino Sugar refinery on Saturday, May 10th. Walker, who is best known for creating room-size tableaux of black cut-paper silhouettes that explore everything from race, gender, sexuality, and violence, will take over the 90,000-square-foot space for what’s to be her first large-scale public installation.
No specifics or images of the work have been released yet, but her press release notes that the installation at Domino “will explore a radical range of subject matter, including but not limited to the history of sugar and its many implications.” Don’t miss out on your chance to see what is sure to be an arresting installation — and the interior of a historic building that will soon be transformed.
