Kara Walker

Dimensioned elevation drawings of Kara Walker with height measurements

Kara Walker is an American visual artist who lives and works in New York City. She is best known for her panoramic silhouette works, which feature life-size black paper silhouettes mounted on white walls and depict narratives of slavery and racial injustice in American history. A 2000 work entitled Insurrection! (Our Tools Were Rudimentary, Yet We Pressed On) displayed silhouettes against colourful light projections, which referenced the plantation novel and technicolor film, Gone with The Wind. In 2020 she made a largescale sculpture for the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. It took the form of a four-tiered fountain and addressed the complex ways our historical narratives are memorialised in public spaces.
