Fresh Talk: Creative Time with Kara Walker

May 29th, 2014 · Comments

This Fresh Talk episode features A Subtlety, American artist Kara Walker’s first ever public art installation. Creative Time, an organization that produces public art projects internationally, invited the artist to respond to the history of the abandoned Domino sugar refinery in Brooklyn. A Subtlety, also known as The Marvelous Sugar Baby, references the intricate sugar sculptures once made for medieval feasts. The work pays homage to the unpaid and overworked laborers in the cane fields and refineries. We spoke to Creative Time Director Anne Pasternak and Kenyan poet Shailja Patel about this transformative project.
