Regram via @nymag: "Our Art & Design issue — on stands now — profiles artist Kara Walker. To get this cover shot, our photo department was researching pictures of the artist, and senior photo editor Roxanne Behr says they kept coming across intimate portraits of her taken by her partner, the photographer Ari Marcopoulos. 'We decided to call Ari and asked him to spend a week documenting Kara’s life as an artist,' says Behr. 'By collaborating with Ari, we had the chance to see intimate scenes that a produced photo shoot we could not have captured. The shirt she is wearing on the cover is one she bought in Brazil in 1999.' Photograph: Ari Marcopoulos⠀

Kara Walker, "The Emancipation Approximation," (detail), 1999-2000, series of 26 screen prints, each 44 x 34", in the exhibition "Emancipating the Past: Kara Walker's Tales of Slavery and Power" @bellevueartsmuseum, Bellevue, Washington, through November 27, 2016. #karawalker #bellevueartsmuseum #fallshows

After last nights's madhouse opening I had to come back first thing this morning to quietly take in Kara Walker's mind-bending, bone-crushing, soul-enriching new show at @sikkemajenkins. This work is unbelievably rich, including historical and contemporary allusions...overt and subliminal. Just to name a few, my personal, wishful, Rorschach test revealed Frederick Douglass, James Brown and a Blazing Saddles era Gene Wilder...but that's just me. Not to be missed!! @kara_walker_official #karawalker

“‘Unfinished Conversations’ strives to depict today’s heavily charged political environment. It doesn’t just showcase art that is engaged with political struggle; it also exposes the personal, cultural, and historical roots of such struggles. It is a collection, one could say, of unfinished conversations about our present day, convened by like-minded souls from around the world.” - @hyperallergic mo.ma/2tGsR07

#UnfinishedConversations closes this Sunday. See newly acquired #MoMACollection work from #SamuelFosso, #AndreaBowers, #KaraWalker, and more.

Pan(demonium). Today was fantastic. #yayoikusama #karawalker #shepardfairey

Sometimes the praise is deserved and some you can't find the words to really praise a show enough, but Kara Walker's show at Sikkema Jenkins is one that will stay with you. A furiously powerful body of work. Not to be missed. #karawalker

The silhouette says a lot with very little information... But that's also what the stereotype does
