Lecture by Carrie Mae Weems

October 23, 2019, 5:30 PM

Free

Considered one of the most influential contemporary American artists, Carrie Mae Weems has investigated family relationships, cultural identity, sexism, class, political systems, and the consequences of power. Weems has sustained an ongoing dialogue within contemporary discourse for more than 30 years, during which time she has developed a complex body of art employing photographs, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation, and video.

Weems was a 2013 recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant, was one of the first people to receive a Medal of Arts from the U.S. Department of State, and was conferred with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award, among other honors.

The Miles and Katharine Culbertson Prentice Distinguished Lecture is cosponsored by the Colby Museum, the Lunder Institute for American Art, and Colby’s Center for Arts and Humanities and Department of Art.
