THE BATTLE OF ATLANTA: BEING THE NARRATIVE OF A NEGRESS IN THE FLAMES OF DESIRE- A RECONSTRUCTION
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Known for black paper cutout silhouettes, Kara Walker also does wall texts, and many of her images depict sex, bestiality, and sadism in what is intended as anti-racist parody. She is part of a generation of controversial African-American artists who deals with stereotypical black images in a confrontational way.

One of her prints tilted A Means to an End: A Shadow Drama in Five Acts, was pulled from a show in 1999 at the Detroit Institute of Arts because it was an antebellum (showing 500 of 2335 characters).
