    Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is proud to present Afterword, a solo exhibition of recent work by Kara Walker, on view from November 21, 2014 through January 17, 2015. Afterword elaborates on the creation and aftermath of Kara Walker’s monumental installation at the Domino Sugar Refinery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn this past summer. Commissioned and presented by Creative Time and entitled A Subtlety, or the marvelous Sugar Baby, an Homage to the unpaid and overworked Artisans who have refined our Sweet tastes form the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World on the Occasion of the of the demolition of the Domino Sugar Refining Plant, the exhibition was inspired by and embedded with the history of sugar and the sugar trade, the focus of which was a colossal, sugar-coated sphinx-like figure that presided over the cavernous, 30,000-square foot space.
