Liner Notes: Carrie Mae Weems

Hey there Henry supporters! I wanted to give you some background on the artist Carrie Mae Weems, whose work, Ode to Affirmative Action (1989), will be seen in the Henry’s new exhibition, The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl.

Here are some images of the artist’s work from the Jack Shainman Gallery website.

Check out this segment on Weems from Art21.

Watch her conversation with David Alan Grier also taken from Art21:

Read this fascinating interview with the artist on Bombsite.

To see the work of this wonderful artist come visit the Henry for The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl, on display from July 13-October 7.
