Carrie Mae Weems: The Personal and the Political

For more than three decades, artist Carrie Mae Weems has created a body of work — including photographs, fabric, text, audio, and video — that probes the fault lines of race, gender, class, politics, and power. In this session, the Prix de Rome and MacArthur Fellowship winner stages a collaborative performance of her work and discusses how it merges the personal and the political. Weems will be joined by her frequent collaborators Sarah Lewis and Tanya Selvaratnam.

Festival: 2018
