Pioneering artist Carrie Mae Weems has investigated family relationships, cultural identity, sexism, class, political systems and the consequences of power in a career that spans over thirty years.


With a practice that encompasses photography, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation, video and performance, Carrie Mae Weems has sustained an on-going dialogue with contemporary discourse, increasingly broadening her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. Weems has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions at major national and international museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Frist Center for Visual Art, Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York, and the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo in Seville, Spain. Her work is part of public and private collections around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and Tate Modern, London. Weems has received six honorary doctorates, numerous awards, grants, and fellowships, including the prestigious Prix de Roma, The National Endowment of the Arts, The Alpert, The Anonymous was a Woman, and The Tiffany Awards. In 2012, Weems was presented with one of the first US Department of State’s Medals of Arts in recognition for her commitment to the State Department’s Art in Embassies programme.
