Virtual Artist Conversation with Carrie Mae Weems

September 20, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT


Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to hear from legendary artist Carrie Mae Weems, joined in conversation by Saisha Grayson, SAAM’s curator of time-based media, to discuss her new exhibition “Carrie Mae Weems: Looking Forward, Looking Back”. Described as an icon, national treasure, and genius, Weems is a moral compass in the field, entwining art and activism to address racism, sexism, classism, colonialism, and xenophobia. For four decades, Weems has been an inspiring force in American art, using photography, text, textile, video, film, installation, public art, and performance. Weems will discuss her career, key artworks, and what inspires her to create. Her work “Lincoln, Lonnie, and Me – A Story in 5 Parts” was recently acquired by the museum and newly installed in our modern and contemporary art galleries. This major video installation brings to life phantoms of America’s past to address contemporary social issues.

Free; registration required.
Online: Livestreaming via SAAM’s YouTube Channel
