Kara Walker – Go to Hell or Atlanta, Whichever Comes First

Kara Walker – Go to Hell or Atlanta, Whichever Comes First

1 October – 7 November 2015
Victoria Miro Gallery I
16 Wharf Road, London N1 7RW


Victoria Miro is delighted to present the first of two exhibitions at the gallery this autumn by the celebrated American artist Kara Walker.

Often provocative and humorous, Kara Walker’s work explores the tensions and power plays of racial and gender relations. Walker’s work engages with historical narratives and the ways in which these stories have been suppressed, distorted and falsified. This exhibition extends her exploration of the brutalising histories of colonialism and slavery, and the political and psychological consequences that accompanies identity formation in contexts of oppression and violence.
