Kara Walker at LEHMANN MAUPIN and SIKKEMA JENKINS & CO.


James Klam visits the two gallery show of recent works by Kara Walker. As one of the most controversial contemporary artists in New York, Walker has maintained her status by constantly pushing the limits of what is and isn't acceptable imagery. Presenting mythologized narratives of America's slave holding past, with a healthy dose of kinky sexual innuendo, the artist probes white guilt while simultaneously stirring sadomasochistic desires. A selection of video pieces are featured at Lehmann Maupin, while large pastel, graphite and ink drawing as well as unique ink transfers are presented at Sikkema & Jenkins.
