Last night, over 700 high-profile guests enjoyed a sneak-peek of Kara Walker’s A Subtlety, her first large-scale public project that sits inside Brooklyn’s Domino Sugar Factory. Supported by Creative Time, attendees to the gala danced to a set by the legendary DJ Afrika Bambaataa and sipped Absolut Elyx cocktails out of tin bottles inspired by the space’s industrial past.
