Kara Walker’s Public Art Installation at Domino Sugar Factory

Kara Walker’s installation at Domino Sugar Factory, fully titled “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,” will activate all your senses and take your breath away. Experiencing the melting sugar sculptures in this massive, historic space is moving, poignant, and disturbingly delicious.

Her site-specific work takes over the factory, not only in scale, but in concept as well. Walker beautifully communicates a political, historically significant work that is still relevant to our current time and culture.
