CARRIE MAE WEEMS
Transition (3D Projection)
Renowned photographer Carrie Mae Weems uses her bust to envision a President Obama born out of conservative extremism. 3-D video images projected onto a blank bust underscore the danger of demagoguery and unpack the source of unfounded critiques of this president.
During the past 25 years, Carrie Mae Weems has worked toward developing a complex body of art that has employed photographs, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation and, most recently, video.
Carrie is a 2013 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, and a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Congressional Black Caucus, the Gordon Parks Foundation Award, the Lucie Foundation Award and the BET Award. Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video at the Guggenheim Museum received accolades worldwide.
