When: Feb. 16-June 12 2016
The SCAD Museum of Art presents "Carrie Mae Weems: Considered," an exhibition by deFINE ART 2016 honoree and keynote speaker Carrie Mae Weems that brings together a range of her work that is both provocatively disparate and deeply connected. This focus on a nuanced consideration of history, particularly as its tropes, forms the core of this exhibition as each series appears universal in scope, yet also isolates and draws upon more individual themes and issues. Weems’ still and moving images reveal families, men, women and the individuals that meld with and yield feelings of hope, despair, solitude, pride, strife and optimism. All of these aspects merge to form poignant visual articulations of our human condition in both days past and present. And in these diverse works that often look back, Weems urges us to be reflective and inquisitive — to consider them critically — within our present moment. Part of deFINE ART.
