This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Carrie Mae Weems. A new retrospective exhibition of Weems’s work titled, “Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video,” opened last week at Nashville’s Frist Center for the Visual Arts.
Among the works we talked about was Weems’s landmark 1995-96 series From Here I Saw What Happened and I Cried, a commission made for the J. Paul Getty Museum and now in the collections of the Getty and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. On the program, Weems described the research process that led to the finished work. See the entire narrative of 33 toned prints on Weems’s own website.
