Official catalogue of the exhibition Carrie Mae Weems: Reflections for Now, taking place at the Barbican from 22 Jun-3 Sep 2023. The first publication devoted to Weems’s writings, it highlights Weems’s influence as an intellectual, reflecting the dual nature of her career as an artist and activist.

Widely considered to be one of the most influential American living artists, Carrie Mae Weems has developed a practice celebrated for her exploration of cultural identity, power dynamics, desire, intimacy and social justice through a body of work that challenges the prevailing representations of race, gender, and class. Defined by the use of photography, installation, film, performance and textile, her remarkably diverse and radical practice questions dominant ideologies and historical narratives created and disseminated within science, architecture, and mass media.
