The American artist is best known for her room-sized black cut-paper silhouettes that examine racial and gender tensions in the US.

The gallery is filled with works that reveal the breadth of Walker's art; from intimate watercolours and large scale graphite drawings to printed text pieces, film and a new cut paper piece that was produced at the exhibition's previous showing at Camden Arts Centre in London.

Walker's current research project is focused on the white supremacist movement in America and the exhibition features characters from throughout history, drawing on events from the time of slavery as well as more recent racial tensions.

As such, images in the display reference history, literature, culture, and human behaviour – all connected by a common exploration of power.

We’re excited to welcome you to the MAC with a wonderful new exhibition programme and we hope you’ll grab a coffee and a bun while you’re here. We’ve missed you, because you make the MAC what it is. Some things are different to how they were before; but others, such as the quality of our welcome, are just the same.

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes and making some changes to how we do things. We’ve reopened with carefully planned social distancing and safety measures in place. We’ve also ticketed our exhibitions to help us manage visitor numbers.
