Carrie Mae Weems - The Jane Fortune Outstanding Women Visiting Artist Lecture

One of the most important and celebrated contemporary American artists, Carrie Mae Weems has for over thirty years investigated issues of race, gender and class, and her artwork continues to raise important questions about cultural identity and the politics of representation. Weems is the recipient of the MacArthur “Genius” grant as well as the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Prix de Rome. In 2013, The Frist Center for Visual Art organized a major retrospective of her work, “Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video,” which travelled to the Portland Art Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
