Carrie Mae Weems is a socially motivated artist whose works invite contemplation on issues surrounding race, gender and class. Increasingly, she has broadened her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. This retrospective, which is composed of more than 200 objects—–primarily photographs but also written texts, audio recordings, fabric banners and videos—–will provide an opportunity to trace the evolution of Weems’s career over the past 30 years.
