Carrie Mae Weems: The Louisiana Project is an installation incorporating still photography, narrative, and video projection as part of an examination of the complex history of New Orleans and the “commingling culture” that has resulted. While the focus of this work is directed toward the particular situation of Louisiana, the implications extend far beyond one state or one region. Issues of race, identity, gender, role playing, and role models have infiltrated every layer of society, culture, and politics. (text courtesy of Pamela Auchincloss/Arts Management)
