The New Yorker (@newyorkermag): "#KaraWalker’s coruscating new hybrids of drawing and painting at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. are, of course, the talk of the town. The show, which marks the first time that Walker has introduced current events into her relentlessly brutal and at times fiendishly hilarious vision of the bitter legacy of slavery in the United States, was hailed by critics as including some of the best art of the century—before it even opened, last Thursday. By Saturday there was a line out the door, and this weekend will be more of the same, so plan to hit Chelsea in the morning." – Andrea Scott, @newyorkermag, 9/9/17

Roberta Smith reviews #KaraWalker for @nytimes: "Ms. Walker emerged in the mid-1990s with incendiary works set adamantly and slyly in the past that were frequently criticized as politically incorrect for caricaturing slavery in the antebellum South. Scaling up the demure 19th-century genre of the black-paper silhouette, she brought to elegant, repellent life an unending stream of vicious master-slave narratives — a continuum of violence, abuse and violation that consumed and corrupted almost all parties, regardless of age or race. Antic, profane and riveting, these mural-like scenes replayed history as farce and masqueraded tragedy as depraved comedy. They revealed the inevitable psychic corruption of humans owning humans, brought out the sexual component of oppression in any form and implied a country still shaped by the original sin of slavery.” The exhibition runs through October 14, 2017. "Dredging the Quagmire (Bottomless Pit)", 2017 @robertasmithnyt #sikkemajenkins

The most Astounding and Important Painting show of the fall Art Show viewing season!

Collectors of Fine Art will Flock to see the latest Kara Walker offerings, and what is she offering but the Finest Selection of artworks by an African-American Living Woman Artist this side of the Mississippi.  Modest collectors will find her prices reasonable, those of a heartier disposition will recognize Bargains! Scholars will study and debate the Historical Value and Intellectual Merits of Miss Walker’s Diversionary Tactics. Art Historians will wonder whether the work represents a Departure or a Continuum. Students of Color will eye her work suspiciously and exercise their free right to Culturally Annihilate her on social media. Parents will cover the eyes of innocent children. School Teachers will reexamine their art history curricula. Prestigious Academic Societies will withdraw their support, former husbands and former lovers will recoil in abject terror. Critics will shake their heads in bemused silence. Gallery Directors will wring their hands at the sight of throngs of the gallery-curious flooding the pavement outside.  The Final President of the United States will visibly wince. Empires will fall, although which ones, only time will tell.

Jennifer Packer’s first solo institutional exhibition opens on September 9, 2017 at The Renissance Society in Chicago.
@rensoc: “Tenderheaded” brings together multiple strands in the artist’s practice, ranging from portraiture to the funerary bouquet. Based in observation, improvisation, and memory, Packer’s canvases are intimate and contemplative, rendered in loose strokes and strong color. Like the exhibition title, the juxtaposition of these various modes of representation and production point to possibilities both bodily and emotional, fragile and strong.  Curated by Solveig Øvstebø. 
#JenniferPacker: “Tenderheaded” runs from September 9, 2017 to November 5, 2017.
