“Kara Walker’s work explores the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through iconic, silhouetted figures. Walker unleashes the traditionally Victorian medium of the silhouette directly onto the walls of the gallery. In recent works, the Walker uses overhead projectors to throw light onto the walls and floor of the exhibition space, implicating the audience through their own shadows.

Kara Walker’s is featured in the Season 2 episode “Stories” of the Art21 series “Art:21 — Art in the Twenty-First Century”.

“EXCLUSIVE: Gabriel Orozco discusses recent photographs taken in Mexico and Ecuador in 2007, and the role photography plays in his broader artistic practice.

Gabriel Orozcos sculptures and photographs disrupt conventional notions of reality. Drawing our attention to slips in logic, philosophical games, and hidden geometries, Orozco uncovers the extraordinary aspects of the seemingly everyday. His use of humble materials and means (graphite on bone, a ball of clay, a 35mm camera) engages the imagination through its disarming simplicity and intimacy.

Gabriel Orozco is featured in the Season 2 (2003) episode Loss & Desire of the Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century television series on PBS.
