Over Time

23 January 2020

Goodman Gallery Cape Town is pleased to present Over Time, a solo exhibition by Carrie Mae Weems first shown in Johannesburg last year.
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 presents 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.
