The singular American artist Carrie Mae Weems, “a superb image maker and a moral force” (New York Times), whose art has investigated topics from cultural identity to politics to the consequences of power, debuts a new program created for NS+. Gentle on my Mind uses narratives, photographs and video, sharing the essential role that music has played in shaping both Weems’s life and work.
Through image & text, film, video, performance, and her many lectures, presentations, and culturally significant convenings with individuals across a multitude of disciplines, Carrie Mae Weems has created a complex body of work that centers on her overarching commitment to helping us better understand our present moment by examining our collective past. Determined as ever to enter the picture — both literally and metaphorically — Weems has sustained an on-going dialogue within contemporary discourse for over thirty-five years.
