Fifty Years After: Gordon Parks, Carrie Mae Weems, Mickalene Thomas, LaToya Ruby Frazier

"Carrie Mae Weems was a logical choice," Barron explains. He is showing the entirety of her "The Kitchen Table Series" (1990). "I am struck by the deep humanity of these pictures. What's intriguing here is that it doesn’t matter who is in the picture or who took it. These are stories and themes that are close to all of us, including relationships with partners, with parents and with children. We all know these domestic environments."
