Man on the treadmill artwork

Considered one of the most influential contemporary American artists, Carrie Mae Weems has investigated family relationships, cultural identity, sexism, class, political systems, and the consequences of power. Determined as ever to enter the picture — both literally and metaphorically — Weems has sustained an on-going dialogue within contemporary discourse for over thirty years. During this time, Carrie Mae Weems has developed a complex body of art employing photographs, text, fabric, audio, digital images, installation, and video.

“People of A Darker Hue”, as noted by Hammonds House Museum, is “a 14-minute short which invites the viewer to reflect on enforcement practices and policies that impact communities of color. Weems narrates the film with her dignified cadence and at once becomes informer and mourner as she speaks the names of those unarmed men and women killed due to police violence.” The film will play continuously during gallery hours.

Gallery 310, located on the third floor of the Hermann Fine Arts Center at Marietta College, is open Monday through Thursday, noon to 4pm, or by appointment at gallery310@marietta.edu. Gallery 310 observes all Marietta College holidays and breaks. All exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public.
