Kara Walker Hyundai Commission




Kara Walker will transform the Turbine Hall with an ambitious new artwork for London.
Based in New York, Kara Walker is renowned for her candid explorations of race, sexuality and violence.

She is best known for her use of black cut-paper silhouetted figures, referencing the history of slavery and the antebellum South in the US through provocative and elaborate installations. Her works, including drawings, sculptures, film and more recently large scale installations, have featured prominently in exhibitions around the world since the mid-1990s.

Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall has hosted some of the world’s most memorable and acclaimed large-scale works of art, enjoyed by audiences of millions each year. The way artists have responded to this vast, former industrial space has transformed public perceptions of contemporary art.
