Artist Talk: Kelley Walker

Artist Kelley Walker discusses his practice and the work on view.

Since the early 2000s, Walker has developed a body of work that examines and indicts some of our nation’s most pervasive cultural, political, and social signifiers. Using striking combinations of disparate visual language—with historical nods ranging from Andy Warhol to Jackson Pollock and Sigmar Polke—Walker modifies and reinterprets existing imagery to address issues of identity politics and challenge the fixed social constructs that underpin American culture.
