In Untitled (Kitchen Table Series) Carrie Mae Weems staged and photographed a fictional drama, playing the lead role herself. In the context of a simple setting that remains constant—the artist’s own kitchen table—the series explores the shifting roles occupied by the strong central female character: lover, friend, and mother. Together the images and texts suggest that while the woman is many things to others, she is first and foremost rooted in herself. The authority of the protagonist in Untitled (Kitchen Table Series) has had an enduring impact for over three decades since this iconic work was created.
