Barbara Walker works in a range of media, from embossed works on paper to paintings on canvas and large-scale charcoal wall drawings, to explore themes of gender, race, representation and power. In 2017, she exhibited at the 57th Venice Biennale as part of the Diaspora Pavilion and in 2023 was both elected to the Royal Academy of Arts and shortlisted for the Turner Prize.
