ABOUT THE PROJECT
Creative Time is thrilled to announce that it will present the first large-scale public project by the internationally renowned Kara Walker, one of the most important artists of our era. Sited in the sprawling industrial relics of Brooklyn’s legendary Domino Sugar Factory, Walker’s physically and conceptually expansive work will respond to both the building and its history, exploring a radical range of subject matter and marking a major departure from her practice to date. The exhibition opens on May 10, 2014, and promises to be an eye-opening experience for both those who are familiar with Walker’s work and those who are new to it.

As is her custom, the artist has given this one a title that is at once poetic and descriptive:

At the behest of Creative Time Kara E. Walker has confected:
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
