Romare Bearden 2

Some images are clearly inspired by music/musicians/sound, others just look like sound (in my opinion). Enjoy!

Carrie Mae Weems and (the lack of) Voices in Museums

“To this day, mainstream institutions exhibit a shocking majority of works from the DWEM (dead white European males) set, leaving a sweeping range of experiences and stories left unshared…Weems’ overall oeuvre explores the experiences of African-American women through photography, text and video. Weems invites viewers to contemplate instances of inequality, whether they be minor incidents in the home or a prejudiced construction of art history. In this series in particular, the artist asks viewers to meditate on museums not as pre-existing temples but man-made creations, in which some are included and others are not.

Book Sculptures + Photography, by Cara Barer

Cara Barer describes her work: “I realized I owned many books that were no longer of use to me, or for that matter, anyone else. Would I ever need “Windows 95?” After soaking it in the bathtub for a few hours, it had a new shape and purpose… Each book tells me how to begin according to its size, type of paper, and sometimes contents.”

Be sure to check out Barer’s website, http://www.carabarer.com/, as well as her blogs.
