Weems lived in San Francisco in the early 1970s, when she took photography classes at City College and first began embarking on her visual arts career. Both Bay Area exhibits represent a homecoming for her, and she's traveling here to deliver a keynote talk on Oct. 16 for her retrospective. "It's my most favorite place in all the world," Weems says of San Francisco. "My understanding of the political, and being involved in the political and the arts, came out of my deep and abiding relationship to San Francisco. It still drives me in very profound ways."
