In the past couple of days Carrie Mae Weems and the Kitchen Table series have been featured in Jim Hedges’ Artworld Gift Guide for the Holidays, a list at the Huffington Post website that highlights, “. . . real art made by recognized contemporary masters for modest prices.” Thanks to Hedges for highlighting this amazing print, available through Light Work, as well as the other fine pieces in the list, including work by Louise Bourgeois, Andy Warhol, and Kehinde Wiley, among others.
Weems also made the news yesterday when a triptych of her work from the Kitchen Table series fetched the highest price at a Christie’s auction, selling for higher than images made by Irving Penn and Ansel Adams, as reported on the Vintage Photo Forum.
