Kara Walker: My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love

Kara Walker (American, born 1969) is best known for her large-scale "black cut-paper silhouettes that examine the underbelly of America's racial and gender tensions. Her works often address such highly charged themes as power, repression, history, race, and sexuality" (Walker Art Center, 2011).

Read more about Kara Walker and how she uses art as a medium to address racial and gender inequalities, desire, and shame at the Walker Art Center's website.
