Kara Walker Exhbit - Hammer Museum
Last weekend I went to see Kara Walker speak at the Hammer Museum. Her work is primarily silhouettes ala turn of the century....with a twist. Mostly based on black slavery, there is always an addition of things like poop, sex and violence when you look closely at the details. Anyway, she stuck around and signed her book, and as an added bonus, I saw Leonard Nimoy and got his autograph too!
