Senior Curator Andrea Karnes on the Work of Carrie Mae Weems

Carrie Mae Weems’s Untitled, 1990, from her kitchen table series is among the most powerful images in the Modern’s collection for what it says about stereotyping race and gender. Andrea Karnes, senior curator, discusses this series, which unfolds with Weems posed before a kitchen table, a domestic setting associated with women. Karnes also offers an exciting update on Weems’s most recent project.

Attendees will be muted, off camera, and able to submit questions via live chat.
