all the shows I’ve ever curated before have been pretty DIY affairs—some friends and I hang art in a gallery & maybe throw a party or play some music. starting this May at the @figgeartmuseum, I get to show a room full of Elizabeth Catletts, Kara Walkers, a beautiful Alma Thomas, work by Jordan Weber & American Artist, & a selection of Yoruba sculptures. the show is called Anonymous Donor and it’s about the hidden and forcibly erased labor that has contributed to this moment in modernity. thank you to the University of Iowa for working w/ me on it. I hope you enjoy these pictures of me looking like a real-life curator 🌸 #blackart#blackartistsmatter#almathomas#karawalker#elizabethcatlett@ivorytower_headass@jordan_j_weber

What are your fav quotes by women artists?@sacredrelicstudio posted a great image of quotes from some inspiring male artists. I asked if she had some from women artists and we decided to make some. I used to cling to the stories and quotes of male artists for guidance until I started digging into the world of women artists and found many missing pieces I didn’t even know I’d needed. Here are some of my favorites. It’s time for art history to include and center intersectional art HERstory. What are some of your fav quotes from women artists? below are the names and some accounts to follow. Please add more in the comments! 🌹 #gabrielletesfaye@tesfayetra#soniadelaunay#romediosvaro#karawalker#yokoono@yokoonoofficial#sacredrelicstudio@sacredrelicstudio#joycejscott#lillianpitt#hilmaafklint@hilmaafklintofficial@shirin__neshat#shirinneshatart#coritakent@coritaartcenter#herstory#womenartists#femaleartists#artherstory

Look closely. . . I went to @thebroad with my daughter this past week and it was inspiring on so many levels. The first floor was closed, but it was worth the price of parking just to see the third floor (the second floor houses the collection). This image is part of a sketch for “The Palmetto Libretto” by #karawalker — reflected in the glass on the right side of the diagonal are the reflections of viewers backed by her cutout installation “African’t”. . .

Kara Walker, "Gone: An Historical Romance of a Civil War as It Occurred b’tween the Dusky Thighs of One young Negress and Her Heart,” 1994. . Through exploring race, gender, sexuality, and violence, Walker’s work remembers and reminds viewers of the United States’ origins of slavery in the antebellum South: “I didn’t want a completely passive viewer. Art means too much too mean. To be able to articulate something visually is really an important thing. I wanted to make work where the viewer couldn’t walk away; he would giggle nervously, get pulled into history, into fiction, into something totally demeaning and possibly very beautiful.” . The piece here is a wall installation from Walker’s 1994 New York exhibition, debuting her hallmark medium of black cut-out silhouettes. She critiques narratives of slavery and stereotypes, commenting that “the history of America is built on… inequality, this foundation of a racial inequality and a social inequality. And we buy into it. I mean, whiteness is just as artificial a construct as blackness is.” http://www.karawalkerstudio.com/

#womenshistorymonth Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. The artist is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. Walker unleashes the traditionally proper Victorian medium of the silhouette directly onto the walls of the gallery, creating a theatrical space in which her unruly cut-paper characters fornicate and inflict violence on one another.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #culturehog#contemporaryart#blackart#africanamerican#black#modernart#blackandwhite#art#arte#artist#artists#karawalker@kara_walker_official#women#herstory

Kara Walker was born in Stockton, California, in 1969. She received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991, and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994. She is best known for exploring the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality through her iconic, silhouetted figures. Walker unleashes the traditionally proper Victorian medium of the silhouette directly onto the walls of the gallery, creating a theatrical space in which her unruly cut-paper characters fornicate and inflict violence on one another. In works like Darkytown Rebellion (2000), she uses overhead projectors to throw colored light onto the ceiling, walls, and floor of the exhibition space; the lights cast a shadow of the viewer’s body onto the walls, where it mingles with Walker’s black-paper figures and landscapes. With one foot in the historical realism of slavery and the other in the fantastical space of the romance novel, Walker’s nightmarish fictions simultaneously seduce and implicate the audience. Walker’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. A 1997 recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship, Walker was the United States representative to the 2002 Bienal de São Paulo. Walker currently lives in New York, where she is on the faculty of the MFA program at Columbia University. . Kara is simply dope at her craft.

Last night culminated a week of incredible museum partnership tours + lessons with my 3-5 graders. Clearly didn’t get enough time in the museum this week so B and I went on a date to Art After Dark, in which we had the privilege of listening to @teresita.fernandez speak on her process and then getting to speak with her personally. Now it’s Spring break and I get to meet my new niece and make art with my nephew in a few days. Pinch me? #greenacresartroom

Lush day doing our first (small but) FIERCE Mag workshop of the year. We created pages inspired by female artists to highlight the lack of representation of females in art history books. So it was fitting to wear this amazing T-shirt celebrating some iconic female artist and of course have a go myself! #smallbutfierce#smallbutfiercemagazine#rebelpage#creating#creativity#workingwithkids#inspiration#fridakahlo#hannahhoch#karawalker#georgiaokeeffe#insprationalwomen#womenartists#womansrtist#art#activism#artistsoninstagram#artactivism#sarahlucas#corneliaparker#workshop#arthistory#wherearethewomen#thehistoryofart#feminist#feminism#nastywomen#nastywoman#iamanastywomanbecause

Two additional shows today come check out all the performances, live poems, and of course spend some time out in the gallery and talk with artists. @2:30p & @7:30pm •This is my latest piece “Noir”, inspired by these 3 ingredients; Black, negative space and “A noise in the dark” also I happened to be inspired by Kara Walker, my black heritage and this being a social piece for community. It dives into the painful history our african ancestors endured yet shows the resilience of Black people and how we elevate and bring so much to current history. Theres so many stories and hidden figures you must see and I wont point them out to you. Enjoy and go head “Talk about it” enjoy some sweet native 🍯 while you do. #MnArtist#Noir#crockpottheatre#Briinoir#BriaunaWilliams#NyArt#melaninmagic#africanlove#blackgirlswhopaint#karawalker#Afrocentric#blackartistconnected#blackartists#Masterpiece#GalleryArt#africanheritage#BlackHistory#Afro#Africa#Bees#Honey#melanin

Heartbreakingly beautiful things 1: Kintsukuroi Posted @withrepost@britishmuseum Can you name #5WomenArtists? As part of Women’s History Month, we're joining @womeninthearts to champion women artists around the world. The first image depicts a stunning sculpture by South Korean artist Yeesookyung. She is known for creating works which celebrate vulnerability and imperfection, combining discarded shards of porcelain that are then fused together with 24 karat gold leaf. The second image shows ‘Poe Clan’, a manga series created by Hagio Moto in the 1970s, featured on a 2018 cover of ‘flowers’ magazine. Hagio Moto is a pioneer of ‘shōjo’ manga, which is aimed at young women – you can see more of her work in our upcoming #MangaExhibition! Third is a piece by American artist Kara Walker, whose work engages with issues of race and gender, the American Civil War and the legacy of slavery. This print confronts the experience of African slaves in the southern states – the title ‘no world’ is a pun on the phrase ‘New World’. . Fourth is a postcard by British artist Rachel Whiteread. Best known for her sculptures made from industrial materials, she was the first woman to win the Turner Prize in 1993. The holes in this postcard transform it into a 2D sculpture – see this work on display in our free exhibition of artists’ postcards. The final image is an ink drawing by Julie Mehretu, who has described her pieces as 'narrative maps without a specific place or location', and ‘like a strange dream’. Born in Ethiopia, she now lives in New York, creating large-scale abstract works. Who are your favourite women artists? #WomensHistoryMonth#WHM19#Yeesookyung#HagioMoto#PoeClan#KaraWalker#RachelWhiteread#JulieMehretu#BritishMuseum#womenartists

Beautiful Minds: In case you haven't heard, Kara Walker, @kara_walker_official, has been chosen to display new work in London Tate Modern's Turbine Hall showcase. Walker is an African American artist whose work addresses gender, race, slavery, sexuality and violence. She follows in the footsteps of other female artists such as Louise Bourgeois and we could not be more excited.⁣ -⁣ 📷 Tina Fineberg⁣ -⁣ #thebeautifulminds#karawalker#karawalkerofficial#tatemodern#tate#turbinehall#turbinehallshowcase#africanamericanartist#femaleartist

I had a terrible day. My anxiety is creeping back up and I started to sink into a depressive phase once again. Art has been the only thing keeping me positive and so I wanted to post another one of my artistic inspirations. This is the work of Kara Walker. She is a paper artist, silhouettist, and an educator. She's a very skilled and talented #blackartist. She was born in 69 and was discovered early on in her career (in her early 20's). Her work depicts the lives of black people before and during the civil war. She also taught art at Columbia University for many years. I discovered her art in 1997 when she had an exhibition at the Walker Art Center. Her work is part of their permanent collection. I was blown away by the level of detail and the way she depicted a very difficult period of American history. The civil war is often romanticized, but her work brings the reality of the lives of black people during that time to the surface. I think her work planted a seed in my mind that paper could be a dramatic artistic medium. She was also the first contemporary black woman's art that I became familiar with. Please google her or go on YouTube and check out an interview. She's such an inspiration. #blackartists#blackfemaleartists#paperart#paperartist#silhouette#mastersofart#blackgirlmagic#civilwarart#civilwarhistory#karawalker
