Acclaimed American artist Kara Walker depicts imagined scenes that address racial prejudice, sexual tension and the history and legacy of slavery in America’s South. This powerful work is typical of the ambiguous and violent undertones of her signature silhouette works which filled Gallery 1 during her 2013 exhibition.
