Offered in conjunction with MAM’s highly anticipated exhibition, Kara Walker: Virginia’s Lynch Mob and Other Works, this sketchbook was started by the artist in Munich in 1999, when she was 29 years old. Like most sketchbooks it served as a portal between the real world and the realm of her imagination. It was never intended to be shared; nevertheless several works which were eventually exhibited originated in this sketchbook. Providing insight to Walker’s art in the MAM exhibition as well as other works, the pages in this sketchbook reflect uneasy, unrefined, unfinished thoughts and anxieties written and drawn with no objectives, no ulterior motives, and no filters.
