Kara Walker: A Black Hole is Everything a Star Longs to be

Kara Walker (b. 1969) presents hundreds of drawings from her studio together with brand-new works in her first extensive solo exhibition in Switzerland at the Kunstmuseum Basel

Kunstmuseum Basel, St. Alban-Graben 16, 4051 Basel, Switzerland

Revealing her personal archive that she has closely guarded for the past twenty seven years, Kara Walker (b. 1969) presents hundreds of drawings from her studio alongside brand-new works by the world-famous American artist.

Walker is one of the most prolific artists working in America today. Provocative and obscene but aesthetically appealing scenes  bring racism, gender, sexuality, and violence into focus. Covering American history from slavery to Barack Obama’s presidency, Walker has no patience for political correctness and does not propose a conciliatory view of the past, instead prodding the viewer to question established narratives and entrenched myths.

*An exhibition by Kunstmuseum Basel in collaboration with Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt and De Pont Museum, Tilburg*
