Galerie Barbara Thumm \ Carrie Mae Weems

\Carrie Mae Weems

Carrie Mae Weems, *1953 in Portland (Oregon), USA,
lives and works in New York

30 available works

Through image, text, film, video, performance, her many lectures, presentations, and culturally significant convenings with individuals across a multitude of disciplines, Carrie Mae Weems has created a complex body of work that centers on her overarching commitment to helping us better understand our present moment by examining our collective past.

Determined as ever to enter the picture – both literally and metaphorically – Weems has sustained an ongoing dialogue within contemporary discourse for over thirty-five years.

In 2019 in her first solo exhibition in five parts in Toronto, Canada, curator Sarah Robayo Sheridan writes of her work, “With a sensibility honed to the rhythms and workings of power, Weems points to a tidal pull of oppressions, inextricably linked, recurrent and indelible.”
