Carrie Mae Weems, Three Decades of Photography and Video (First Center for the Visual Arts)

Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video is a must-read retrospective accompanying the national tour of the exhibition with the same title. Featuring some of Weems’s most important art works, the book has essays by leading scholars, explores Weems’s interest in subject matter such as folklore, spoken and written word, and black beauty. In her artistic style, Weems is committed to a variety of issues of social justice. Her early career focused on African-American women and families and has evolved to the stories from the African diaspora, from the legacy of slavery to stereotypes and continues to evolve to include global struggles for equality and justice.
