Kara Walker: Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated)
From: 11:30 AM to 07:00 PM
Kara Walker daringly uses and reimagines 19th century portraits to confront observers with racial inequalities and injustices. In this exhibit, you can experience Walkers thought-provoking interpretations, in which she overlays stenciled figures on original scenes depicted in Harpers in an 1866 anthology of the Civil War. Walkers images will be displayed next to the original prints, showing her approach to history and how the present affects our understanding of the past, and vice versa.
