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. Weems also has a very good website. It’s full of her work, links and more. Don’t miss it.
One of the topics Weems and I discussed is why she so often places the protagonist of her work with her back to the camera, as in this piece from Beacon(2005.)
