On June 30th, Strand Bookstore celebrated the publication of Carrie Mae Weems’ new monograph, Kitchen Table Series. Kitchen Table Series is the first book dedicated entirely to this body of work by the artist. The event featured a reading, book signing, and talk with Weems and curator Adrienne Edwards. The series, first exhibited in 1990, examines underrepresented elements of black home life in classic, revolutionary, and dramatic images.
