I am super excited about Kara Walker's new show at the Whitney. My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love is on view October 11 through February 3, 2008.
"If you have any doubt that racism is alive and well and on a continuous shooting spree in the American psyche, why not ask the experts? Clarence Thomas will have an opinion on this. So will Madonna. G. Constantine, the Columbia University Teachers College professor whose office door was defaced with a noose this week. Or ask the African-American artist Kara Walker, whose exquisite, implacable, loose-cannon retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art is about race first and last." —New York Times
