Kara Walker is creating an enormous work of art in the old Domino sugar factory in Williamsburg. Opening on May 10th, the sphinx-like sculpture will actually be made out of Domino sugar, and is entitled “A Subtlety”. The New York Times describes the work as “an ode to the cane fields’ black labor that she has chosen to make grotesquely white.” (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/27/arts/design/kara-walker-creates-a-confection-at-the-domino-refinery.html?_r=1#)
