Panel discussion moderated by Anthony Grudin, Assistant Professor, UVM Department of Art and Art History; with Christina Sharpe, Associate Professor of English, Tufts University; and John Gennari, Associate Professor, UVM Department of English.

Kara Walker is one of the most complex and prolific artists of her generation, and a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, or "genius grant," in 1997. She is known for producing a series of provocative works that address such highly charged themes as violence, history, race, and sexuality, through silhouetted figures. This panel takes a closer look at the development of Walker's work up to the present day. Co-sponsored by Special Collections at UVM's Bailey-Howe Library.
