Kara Walker, A Subtlety, 2014.

Kara Walker's site-specific work, "A Subtlety", is on display at the Domino Sugar Factory. The full title of the work is: A Subtlety or the Marvelous Sugar Baby: an Homage to the unpaid and overworked Artisans who have refined our Sweet tastes from the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World on the Occasion of the demolition of the Domino Sugar Refining Plant. Art critic Deborah Solomon talks about the piece and the space in context.
