Kara Walker: Cut to the Quick

Kara Walker: Cut to the Quick

Presented by Cincinnati Art Museum at Cincinnati Art Museum

Among the most complex and prolific American artists of her generation, Kara Walker has gained national and international recognition for her cut-paper silhouettes depicting historical narratives haunted by sexuality, violence, and subjugation. Her work leads viewers to a critical understanding of the past while also proposing an examination of contemporary racial and gender stereotypes.

This exhibition features more than 80 works created between 1994 and 2019 that offer a broad overview of the artist’s career. The exhibition demonstrates the artist’s facility in diverse media from her early large-scale cut-outs to prints, drawings, paintings, book arts, sculpture, and film.
