Carrie Mae Weems : the Hampton Project by Vivian Patterson( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One Hundred Years of Difference brings together photographs from Frances B. Johnston's stunning Hampton Album of 1900 with a related series of new images by renowned contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems. Johnston's portrayal of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, founded in 1868 in Virginia for the education of "selected Negro youths" and displaced Native Americans, is a thought-provoking historical album. Weems, known for her savvy and ironic view of race struggle in America, illustrates the "one hundred years of difference" with a new series of photographic banners, shaped in direct response to Johnston's images and to life at Hampton University today. This remarkable book examines the work of two women, distanced by time and race yet joined by their shared interest in a unique educational experience. One Hundred Years of Difference includes an interview with Weems, as well as essays by Deborah Willis (curator for the Center for African-American History and Culture at the Smithsonian Institution) and Jeanne Zeidler (director of the Museum of Art at Hampton University), among others. An accompanying exhibition opened at the Williams College Museum of Art in March 2000 and will travel to venues throughout the United States

Muse : Mickalene Thomas photographs by Mickalene Thomas( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mickalene Thomas, known for her large-scale, multi-textured, and rhinestone-encrusted paintings of domestic interiors and portraits, has also identified the photographic image as a defining touchstone for her practice. Thomas first began to photograph herself and her mother as a student at Yale--a pivotal experience for her as an artist. While working across multiple series, much of her photographic work functions as a personal act of deconstruction and reappropriation--both of images she has created herself and images she has singled out as influence. With each series, she grapples with and asserts new definitions of beauty and inspiration. Thomas's portraits draw equally from 1970s black-is-beautiful images of women such as supermodel Beverly Johnson and actress Vonetta McGee; Édouard Manet's odalisque figures; and the mise-en-scène studio portraiture of James Van Der Zee and Malick Sidibé, to mention a few. Perhaps of greatest importance, however, this collection of portraits and staged scenes reflects a very personal community of inspiration as well--a collection of muses that includes herself, her mother, and her friends and lovers, emphasizing the communal and social aspects of art-making and creativity that pervade her work. This volume is the first to gather together her various approaches to photography, including portraits, collages, Polaroids, and other processes, and will be the foundation for a major traveling exhibition of the work to launch in 2015." -- Publisher's description
