Kara Walker

The Camden Arts Centre is the latest gallery in London to open an X-rated art show. "Please note the subject matter in the exhibition is challenging and explicit." Kara Walker, who describes herself as a "Negress", takes an uncompromising view of American slavery which is both racist and rude. Black cutouts feature rubber-lipped, big-bummed blacks receiving the unwanted attentions of nasty white slavers in silhouette. Shown is a video still from Kara Walker's Fall From Grace, Miss Pipi’s Blue Tale (2011). I usually give Camden Arts Centre shows the bum's rush, but this one looks thought-provoking and artistic. Admission is free. So, if you're not easily offended, it looks worth a visit (CLICK).
