Kara Walker, whose work borrows from the American 19th-century vernacular of silhouettes, is undoubtedly one of the most influential artists working today.  Her art, which addresses traditional ideas about sex, gender, African-American identity, slavery and myths of American antebellum grace is worth checking out.  Linked above is a great interview with the artist.
