Carrie Mae Weems (Yale University Press, publisher)

I was so moved by Weems’ exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art ( that I was, for only the second time in my museum going life, prompted to buy the huge, overpriced book in the museum gift store. And I didn’t read the first one – just flipped through it. This one, I read. It seemed like Yale must have asked several notable critics to offer short essays on Weems’ work, and they were fine, if a bit redundant. And why no interview with Weems?

The real power here is the chance to examine Weems’ work, which includes her own writing.
