Carrie Mae Weems : three decades of photography and video by Carrie Mae Weems( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems (b. 1953) hits hard with a powerful mix of lived life and social commentary. Since the late 1970s, her photographs, films, and installations have become known for presenting realistic and authentic images of African Americans while confronting themes of race, gender, and class. This book, the first major survey of Weems's career, traces the artist's commitment to addressing issues of social justice through her artwork. Her early photographs, which focused on African American women and families, have since led to work that examines more general aspects of the African diaspora, from the legacy of slavery to the perpetuation of debilitating stereotypes. Increasingly, she has broadened her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. This beautifully illustrated book highlights over 200 of Weems's most important works. Accompanying essays by leading scholars explore Weems's interest in folklore, her focus on the spoken and written word, the performative aspect of her constructed tableaux, and her expressions of black beauty."--Publisher's website
Shinique Smith : wonder and rainbows( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the fall of 2013, the Frist Center began a relationship with Shinique Smith that has deepened over the years to inspire the publication of this book, a lasting document of our esteem. Her work has been presented at the Frist Center almost continuously over the past three years. Smith was one of the artists in "30 Americans", a touring exhibition drawn from the Rubell Family Collection in Miami. Intrigued by Smith's two sculptures in that exhibition, the Frist Center curator in charge of "30 Americans", Kathryn Delmez, subsequently organized "Shinique Smith: Wonder and Rainbows", a 2015 solo show in the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery. During the preparation of "Wonder and Rainbows", Frist Center educators Shaun Giles and Rosemary Brunton initiated a colalborative project with local teaching artists that would result in "Found Narratives", a 2016 exhibition inspired by Smith's work

We shall overcome : press photographs of Nashville during the Civil Rights era( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty years after Martin Luther King Jr.'s death--and at a time when race relations and social justice are again at the forefront of our country's consciousness--this book expands on a Frist Center for the Visual Arts exhibition to present a selection of approximately one hundred photographs that document an important period in Nashville's struggle for racial equality. The images were taken between 1957, the year that desegregation in public schools began, and 1968, when the National Guard was called in to surround the state capitol in the wake of the civil rights leader's assassination in Memphis. Photographs from the archives of both daily newspapers will be included: the Tennessean, which was the more liberal publication, and the Nashville Banner, a conservative paper whose leadership seemed less interested in covering events related to racial issues. Some of the photographs in the exhibition were selected to be published in the papers, but many were not, the disclosure of which reveals insight into the editorial process."--Provided by publisher
