Carrie Mae Weems: Untitled (from the Sea Islands series)

Exhibition Website

Feb 11 2017 - Jun 18 2017

This iteration of Viewpoints features a photographic triptych by Carrie Mae Weems (U.S., born 1953) that was sourced from historic ethnographic photographs of a South Carolina slave. Originally used as mechanisms of racial classification and subjugation, Weems’ source images are here turned into an homage that addresses the dehumanizing history carried in the subject’s body and her image.
