The Ecstasy of St. Kara is the debut exhibition of Kara Walker’s new body of large-scale works on paper, organized by the CMA in close collaboration with the artist. The drawings stem from Walker’s consideration of monuments and notions of permanence and impermanence following her massive public art project, A Subtlety (2014), in Brooklyn.
