Whether you’ve seen Kara Walker’s new exhibit at Brooklyn’s Domino Sugar Factory in person or only heard about it, you know that it’s epic. The work features a 35-foot-tall sugar sphinx that is probably one of the most moving indictments of the historical legacy of sugar production. And while the exhibit — called “A Subtlety” — certainly speaks for itself, it helps to have the artist say a few words about it.
On Tuesday, May 20 at 7pm Walker will be in conversation with Radiolab’s Jad Abumrad at the New York Public Library. The conversation will be livestreamed so be sure to tune in. Here’s more.
