Carrie Mae Weems’s Coming Up for Air (2003–04) features a series of unrelated yet linked vignettes that examine human relationships, including those between black men and white women in antebellum New Orleans, quarreling sisters hoping for reconciliation, a child and an adored father, and young idealistic lovers (suggestive of Winnie and Nelson Mandela) before a loss of innocence. Screenings take place in the New Media Theater, located on the museum’s lower level in the Sackler Center for Arts Education.
Free with museum admission. For more information, visit guggenheim.org/filmscreenings.
