In late spring of 2014, Creative Time presented the first large-scale public project by Kara Walker, one of the most important artists of our era. Sited in the sprawling industrial relics of Brooklyn’s legendary Domino Sugar Factory, Walker’s physically and conceptually expansive installation—a massive, sugar-coated sphinx-like woman—responded to the building and its history.
1. Create and manage a team to cover the exterior coating of the Sphinx-like sculpture
2. Prototype and oversee the casting of large-scale figurines
Unfortunately there were some difficulites along the way.
