CARRIE MAE WEEMS
Three Decades of Photography and Video


This book, the first major survey of Weems's career, traces the artist's commitment to addressing issues of social justice through her artwork.
 
This illustrated book highlights over 200 of Weems's most important works. Accompanying essays by leading scholars explore Weems's interest in folklore, her focus on the spoken and written word, the performative aspect of her constructed tableaux, and her expressions of black beauty – contributions by Kathryn E. Delmez, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Franklin Sirmans, Robert Storr and Deborah Willis.
