Carrie Mae Weems: The Louisiana Project runs until October 9 at San Francisco’s new The Museum of the African Diaspora (MOAD). I’ve followed her work for years. This show takes the vernacular of shadows and uses its abstract form to hint at the slave experience that is a part of America’s sordid heritage.
Living a bi-coastal existence has its advantages. A Brooklyn mural epitzomes the cheap plastic slipper/sandals that were so popular 2 seasons ago. In San Francisco, you can see a Play Station ad on Van Ness Avenue disguised as graffitti. Who ever designed this deserves a raise!
