Kara Walker's work astutely examines race, gender, and identity. Walker's newest series of large-scale drawings stem from her consideration of monuments and notions of permanence and impermanence following her massive public art project, A Subtlety, in Brooklyn. Influenced in part by the artist's recent residency at the American Academy in Rome, this series of drawings is an extensive examination of how Walker envisions the rise and fall of society. Richly illustrated, this publication includes plates of each drawing, as well as intimate photographs of the artist at work taken by her partner, acclaimed artist and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos. An introduction by Reto Thuring and Beau Rutland contextualizes the importance of this latest evolution within Walker's oeuvre; John Lansdowne addresses the topic of Christian iconography and its relationship to Walker's new drawings; and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Tracy K. Smith contributes a new poem. In addition, a text by Walker considers her work within the recent political climate.
