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.
