Artist Carrie Mae Weems

On April 5, we were proud to host an enthralling talk by the extraordinary Carrie Mae Weems (seen here taking the stage with her work, The Considered, projected above). Over her three-decade-long career, the contemporary art legend has explored how images shape and separate cultures through a wide variety of media. By popular demand, this WexCast shares the audio of her artist talk.
