If you haven't made it out to the Domino Sugar factory, it's a good time to visit. The artist Kara Walker has infused the factory with thought-provoking confectionary sculptures. I visited last weekend to see the installation and revisit the space.
A powerful personification of the most beleaguered demographic in this country — the black woman — shows us where we all come from, innocent and unrefined.
Walker's A Subtlety or The Marvelous Sugar Baby an Homage to the unpaid and overworked Artisans who have refined our Sweet tastes from the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World on the Occasion of the demolition of the Domino Sugar Refining Plant — runs through July 6 at the former Domino Sugar factory: 317 Kent Avenue at South 1st Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is open Friday 4 – 8 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 12 – 6 pm.
