Kara WalkerAmerican artist Kara Walker fills the Camden Arts Centre galleries with the process of her art in her first major solo exhibition in the UK. Intimate watercolours, large scale graphite drawings, printed text works and film installations are added to by a new cut paper piece which will be produced on-site. Walker's art is layered with images that reference history, literature, culture, and the darker aspects of human behaviour.

 

About Camden Arts Centre

The Camden Arts Centre has become a prime location for top class arts exhibitions thanks to a radical renovation in 2007. The design, by Tony Fretton Architects, created a modern, light and spacious venue while retaining many original features such as the entrance arches, terrazzo flooring and tall, stone dressed windows.
