“Weems has long been one of our most effective visual and verbal rhetoricians. When she tackles complex subjects in complex ways, the results are… deeply stirring.” – Holland Cotter, The New York Times

Galerie Barbara Thumm is pleased to present Push, Carrie Mae Weems’ first solo exhibition with the gallery. Throughout her career Weems’ works have compelled viewers to actively consider how the world is structured, revealing systems of oppression and inequality while exploring the relationships between power, class, race and gender. Push present several bodies of work, which look at these themes in relation to how the past comes to bear on the present. In this regard Weems reflects on history in order to engage with the present and question where we might be going.
