|Recurring Event (See all)
Tuesday through Saturday

Curated by Vera Ingrid Grant

The Cooper Gallery presents the evocative work of internationally acclaimed photography and video installation artist Carrie Mae Weems, recipient of the 2013 MacArthur “Genius” grant and the 2015 W.E.B. Du Bois Medal. The exhibition highlights her storytelling tableaux that question our social constructs of power, race, and space and pose a more multi-dimensional concept of humanity. Organized in three parts, Beauty, Legacies, and Landscapes, the installation illuminates our social and aesthetic vistas – both real and imagined – and centers on Weem’s stunning expressions of black beauty.
