Kara Walker

Tate Modern, Bankside

The latest artist to take on Tate Modern’s daunting annual Turbine Hall commission is the brilliant Kara Walker. The American artist has forged a powerful path of fierce, political art, dealing with topics like slavery and identity through shadow puppetry, painting and installation. What’s she going to do with the Turbine Hall? Haven’t a clue. But we’re seriously excited about seeing it.
