The Disruptors

Kara Walker


Her cutout silhouettes stand silently but speak loudly on the charged issues of these times-race, sex, violence-while presenting unvarnished stories of our past. Controversial? Perhaps. Iconoclastic? Absolutely. A past MacArthur Fellow whose work is in major museums across the country, Walker moves skillfully across mediums and continues to push boundaries and challenge perceptions.
