My Compliment,
My Enemy,
My Oppressor,
My Love

who wants to come with me to see this? my kcrw fringe benefits card will give me 2 for 1 admission and 20% off the exhibition catalog until june 8.

you see, in my junior year of design school, i designed an exhibit space just for her work as one of my projects. so i've got to see this.

a little bit more, from the email kcrw sent me:
This acclaimed exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of Walker's work and includes works in a wide array of materials and mediums. Small, intimate, delicately executed drawings contrast with expansive installations of sharply cut black-paper silhouettes. Light projections, video installations, and text works are also included. Walker confronts the complexity of race relations in America by creating characters and stories that are both alluring and highly disturbing, beautiful but often repugnant, rendered with exceptional formal and technical sophistication.

it's at the hammer museum in westwood.
