Kara Walker seems to be everywhere these days. Now you can see her at the Whitney too. "My Complement, My Enemy, My Oppressor, My Love" will be on view until Februray 2008. As the press release states, "The intricacy of her imagination and her diligent command of art history have caused her silhouettes to cast shadows on conventional thinking about race representation in the context of discrimination, exclusion, sexual desire, and love." Ms. Walker is one of the most important artists of our day.
