7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kara Walker: Narratives of a Negress presents a comprehensive overview of Walker's work, beginning with her first cut-paper wall installation, Gone, An Historical Romance of a Civil War as it Occurred between the Dusky Thighs of One Young Negress and Her Heart, 1994, through new multimedia installations that feature layers of colored projections. The 1996 series of twenty-four watercolors, Brown Follies, is reproduced in full, as are many views of Walker's past exhibitions. Throughout the book is a selection of Walker's writings printed as they appear typed on index cards. These writings reveal a rarely seen side of the artist, whose words are as provocative as her installations and drawings. Also included are four essays that discuss Walker's place in art history, formal and narrative dimensions of her work, her relation to culture at large, and issues of race, sexuality, and representation addressed in her art."--BOOK JACKET
