March 26th, 2013
On Tuesday, March 26, artist Carrie Mae Weems will speak at Carnegie Mellon’s Kresge Theater as part of the School of Art Lecture Series. This lecture begins at 5pm.
During the past twenty-five years, Carrie Mae Weems has worked toward developing a complex body of art that has employed photographs, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation and video. Her work has led her to investigate family relationships, gender roles, the histories of racism, sexism, class and various political systems. Currently, her work is the focus of a major retrospective, Carrie Mae Weems: 3 Decades of Photography and Video on view now at The Frist Center for Visual Arts in Nashville. It will travel to the Portland Art Museum in Oregon; Cleveland Museum of Art, Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. A new video, Lincoln, Lonnie and Me-a Story in 5 Parts, is on view at the Mattress Factory. She is represented in collections around the world, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA and The Williams College Museum of Art.
