Carrie Mae Weems: The Shape of Things


by Hans Ulrich Obrist (Interviewer), Carrie Mae Weems (Photographer), Tom Eccles (Foreword), Huey Copeland (Contributor), Thomas Lax (Contributor)

 Carrie Mae Weems has often confronted the uncomfortable truths of racism and race relations over the course of her nearly 40-year career. In The Shape of Things she focuses her unflinching gaze at what she describes as the circuslike quality of contemporary American political life. For this new work, Weems created a seven-part film projected onto a Cyclorama―a panoramic-style cylindrical screen that dates to the 19th century―where she addresses the turmoil of current events in the United States and the “long march forward.”
