Dawoud Bey & Carrie Mae Weems: In Dialogue
Edited with text by Ron Platt. Introduction by Dana Friis-Hansen. Text by Kinshasha Holman Conwill, Dawoud Bey, Carrie Mae Weems.
A visual and conceptual conversation between two leading US photo-artists famed for their mutual explorations of race, class and power, Dawoud Bey and Carrie Mae Weems met in New York in the late 1970s, and over the next 45 years these close friends and colleagues have each produced unique and influential bodies of work around shared interests and concerns.
This publication brings together over 140 photographs and video art from the 1970s through the 2010s by two of our most notable and influential photo-based artists.
Dawoud Bey & Carrie Mae Weems: In Dialogue brings their work together in five thematic groupings to shed light on their unique creative visions and trajectories, and their shared concerns and principles.
Photographer Dawoud Bey (born 1953) had his first exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1979. Famed for her Kitchen Table Series, among other works, Carrie Mae Weems (born 1953) explores power, class, Black identity, womanhood, and the historical past and its resonance in the present moment.
