Though Kara Walker seemed to be making political statements on the gallery walls, her artist statement and the show title were in my opinion the most politically charged. You can feel her resentment for being the poster child for black contemporary art and racial politics in art. The show itself seemed like a response to the art world hype; basically saying Kara Walker's work is dope, we hate the criticism but love the hype.
