Deborah Willis Lecture

Carrie Mae Weems: Reflections for Now

photo of Deborah Willis

Artist, writer and activist Deborah Willis draws from Carrie Mae Weems' body of work to deliver a lecture reflecting on the intimate and the political, and the role of domesticity in shaping history. 

Over the last four decades Willis has engaged in a pioneering artistic practice exploring themes related to identity, history and popular culture, and developed leading academic research focusing on the cultural histories envisioning the black body, women and gender identity.

In collaboration with Carrie Mae Weems' Social Studies Collective, and drawing from Weems’s bodies of work such us Kitchen Table, 22 Million Very Tired and Very Angry People or Constructing History, this lecture will examine the interconnection among the intimate and the political.
