“Color and class are still the great divides in American culture, and few artists have surveyed them as subtly and incisively as Carrie Mae Weems.”
—Holland Cotter, The New York Times

In this ongoing collaboration, BAMcinématek invites celebrated visual artists to present their work on the big screen alongside ART21’s acclaimed documentaries, while discussing their careers and sharing their greatest influences. ART21 is the preeminent chronicler of contemporary art, inspiring a more creative world through the work and words of living artists.

In a career spanning three decades, celebrated artist Carrie Mae Weems has boldly confronted issues of race, class, gender, and personal identity in her innovative film and video work. Fresh off a comprehensive retrospective at the Guggenheim this spring, Weems joins BAMcinématek and ART21 for a screening of select works and the acclaimed documentary revealing her process. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Weems and former MoMA curator Laurence Kardish.

Films include:
I Look at Women, directed by Carrie Mae Weems, 5min
Lincoln, Lonnie, and Me, directed by Carrie Mae Weems, 15min 
ART21, Art in the Twenty-First Century: Carrie Mae Weems, 16min
