1. Kara Walker

At Sikkema Jenkins & Co.; through November 21

2. ‘Early Signs’

At McKee; through December 21

Though it may be minuscule compared with MoMA’s 45-sculpture survey of Martin Puryear’s prolific career, McKee presents a handful of his earlier works, alongside those of Vija Celmins and Daisy Youngblood.
