UP CLOSE: Kara Walker

Associate Curator Sarah Loyer discusses artist Kara Walker and a new acquisition by Walker called The White Power ‘Gin I Machine to Harvest the Nativist Instinct for Beneficial Uses to Border Crossers Everywhere (2019). In this work, Walker imagines harvesting racist anxieties and fears with a patented machine.

Featuring The Broad’s curators, Up Close is a series that takes a deeper look at artists and works in the Broad collection, which is notable for the exceptional depth of its holdings and dedication to the full arc of artists’ careers.
