Photographer Carrie Mae Weems and the power of architecture

December 10, 2010


The brilliant photographer Carrie Mae Weems spoke at the Art Institute last night, kicking off the showing of her Kitchen Table Series at the museum's Modern Wing.

Hate that I missed her talk, but I'm glad I found the above clip of Weems expressing some rather compelling notions about architecture, space and power.

And check out the Kitchen Table Series-- one of Weems' best-known works --if you can,. It'll be at the Art Institute until June.
