 Published on Jun 22, 2015 Artist Barbara Kruger, the 2014/15 Getty Artists Program invitee, is internationally renowned for her large-scale and immersive image, text, and video installations that address provocative social, cultural, and political issues. For her project Whose Values?, Kruger joined forces with LAUSD Title I High Schools, engaging with 400 students as an artist-in-residence at Grover Cleveland and Chatsworth Charter High Schools. Working closely with students, teachers, and Getty staff, Kruger engaged in an extensive series of classroom discussions and activities supporting critical thinking as well as collaborative art and writing projects to investigate core curricular themes of social justice, identity, race, gender, and advocacy. The installation at the Getty Center culminates this project and highlights the students’ collaborative and creative visualization of Kruger’s guiding and thought-provoking questions: Whose Values? Whose Justice? Whose Fears? Whose Hopes? Go to to learn more about the Whose Values? project and the Getty Artists Program. Subscribe NOW to the Getty Museum channel: Love art?

Artist of Inspirarion: Kara Walker

Episode #207: In this episode of ART21 "Exclusive," Kara Walker reflects on her early success and offers advice to the next generation of artists. Walker received widespread attention after being included in a group exhibition at The Drawing Center in New York City in 1994, not long after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island. Walker remained in Providence until she “felt ready” to make the move to New York. However, “When I came to the City,” she says, “I felt like my newly forming ego and sense of self was just torn to shreds.” Now a professor in Columbia University’s MFA program, Walker sees the many challenges that young artists face today and encourages them to take responsibility for changing negative conditions in the art world. Walker is shown in New York City installing cut paper silhouettes and framed paintings at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. in 2013 and visiting the gallery’s booth at the 2014 Frieze Art Fair, where she is accompanied by her mother. 

Kara Walker explores the raw intersection of race, gender, and sexuality in her work, crafting vivid psychological narratives from a contemporary perspective on historical conditions. Over the past two decades, Walker has unleashed the traditionally Victorian medium of the silhouette onto the walls of the gallery, creating immersive installations that envelop the viewer. Walker's multi-media work—which includes drawing, watercolor, video, and sculpture—often reconsider grotesque caricatures, probing their persistence in popular culture and reclaiming their subjugating power to alternative ends.

CAC is Headed to the Philadelphia Museum of Art December 8, 2016

Now Through January 8, 2017
From the start of the Mexican Revolution to the aftermath of World War II, artists and intellectuals in Mexico were at the center of a great debate about their country’s destiny. The exhibition tells the story of this exhilarating period through a remarkable range of images, from masterpieces by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Frida Kahlo, and Rufino Tamayo to transfixing works by their contemporaries Dr. Atl, María Izquierdo, Roberto Montenegro, Carlos Mérida, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, and many others.
