Internationally noted contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems, one of two artists to speak at the museum on the occasion of its east wing opening in 2009, returns to the Cleveland Museum of Art to reflect on her career and body of work. Over the past thirty years, Weems has explored issues of race, gender, and class in thought-provoking photographic and video works, with an overarching commitment to better understanding the present by closely examining history and identity.
