Art Exhibitions

Over Time

7 September 2019 - 5 October 2019

Goodman Gallery Johannesburg is pleased to announce Over Time, Carrie Mae Weems' first solo exhibition on the continent.
 
Weems is considered one of the most influential contemporary American artists. Using photography, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation and video, Weems compels viewers to actively consider how the world is structured, bringing to light systems of oppression and inequality while exploring the relationships between power, class, race and gender.
 
Over Time 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.   
 
Weems is the recipient of prestigious awards, grants and fellowships, including the BET Honors Visual Artist award, the MacArthur “Genius” grant, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Prix de Roma, among others. Her work is held in public and private collections around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Modern Art, NY and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
