In October 2019 the Tate Modern unveils the latest Hyundai Commission for the venue's Turbine Hall, undertaken this year by Kara Walker.
Kara Walker is renowned for her candid explorations of race, sexuality and violence. She is best known for her use of black cut-paper silhouetted figures, referencing the history of slavery and the antebellum South in the US through provocative and elaborate installations. Her works, including drawings, sculptures, film and more recently large-scale installations, have featured prominently in exhibitions around the world since the mid-1990s. Walker has created a hugely ambitious commission, which once again sees Tate Modern’s iconic Turbine Hall vastly transformed.
