This summer Kemper at the Crossroads is hosting the latest episode of artist Jaimie Warren's Whoop Dee Doo, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Jaimie Warren: You Are So Beautiful in the Face, on view now through October 3rd. By Drew Bolton


Kansas City, MO – Here, Kemper Museum curator Christopher Cook interviews the artist about her inspirations and goals for the project.

"Jaimie Warren: You Are So Beautiful in the Face"
June 5-October 3, 2009
Kemper at the Crossroads
33 W. 19th Street
Kansas City, Missouri

From the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art's website: "For photographer Jaimie Warren, life is a performance and the world is her stage. Through a pseudo-documentary lens, she frames the world almost indiscriminately, capturing the quirky personalities, places, and oddball moments that shape her life...While her portraits and close-ups of food invoke photographers Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, and Nikki S. Lee, among others, Warren's photographs are uniquely her own."

Produced in collaboration with KCUR 89.3 FM, Kemper ARTcasts is the Kemper Museum's podcast series. This project brings the voices and insights of artists, as well as community and curatorial voices, to a broad range of listeners.
