Carrie Mae Weems: A Great Turn in the Possible

Multidisciplinary artist, C.M. Weems is known above all for the photographic work she has been developing for nearly forty years. This exhibition reviews all of her work chronologically and aims to underline the way in which Weems approaches photography as ahead of its time and always projects her images into the future with a tireless sense of hope.

From the outset, Carrie Mae Weems has dedicated herself to reframing the identity of the African-American community and that of women, to exploring the mechanisms behind power, who wields it and over whom it is wielded, as well as to questioning institutional narratives surrounding history. Her works, although focused on photography, exceed the limits of the medium and range from performance to videos and installations ‒to cite just a few‒ and they are imbued by a sense of struggle against injustice and violence in the hope of making this a better world.

Exhibition dates: October 5th 2022 to January 15th 2023
Exhibition hours: Mondays closed (except for holidays). Tuesdays to Sunday (and holidays): 11:00 – 19:00h.
