the Strauch-Mosse Visiting Artist Lecture series

Carrie Mae Weems:
Photographer and Video Artist

Thursday, October 1, 2015 | 7:00pm
Washburn Auditorium
Lesley University Brattle Campus
10 Phillips Place
Cambridge, MA

Over the course of three decades, the work of photographer and video artist Carrie Mae Weems has evolved to employ text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation, and video. A focus on storytelling sets the foundation for her complex bodies of work, which examine the human condition through the lenses of family relationships and gender roles as well as histories of racism, sexism, class, and political systems. Described as “One of the more interesting artists working in the gap between art and politics,” by Roberta Smith of The New York Times, Weems’ explorations of humanity, equality, and justice have earned much critical acclaim. Her work has appeared in major exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1998), the Guggenheim Museum (2013), and many other prominent museums and galleries, and her numerous awards, grants, and fellowships include the Prix de Roma, and Anonymous Was a Woman. Weems is also the recipient of the MacArthur grant as well as the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award.


This lecture is free and open to the public.
