Black Interiority (12*)

Still from Dream Is What You Wake Up From

Two films interpreting the physical and mental layers of interior domestic spaces, built around Carrie Mae Weems' exploration of Black female subjectivity.

This film programme is part of the Carrie Mae Weems: Reflections for Now public programme at the Barbican Centre, and presents two films that explore a dialogue around Black lived experience (particularly of Black women) and spaces in our homes.

Carrie Mae Weems explorations of Black female subjectivity serve as a point of departure for this programme, which extends her interest in the spatial and emotional dimensions of interior domestic spaces, most famously explored in her celebrated Kitchen Table Series.

The two films in this programme foreground interior spaces, and explore the everyday lives of their protagonists, creating layered portraits of the African American subjects.

See the Programme section for more information on these films.
