Present Tense

March 27 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Present Tense with Carrie Mae Weems, contemporary American artist. This event is sponsored and organized by the Clement A. Price Institute at Rutgers University-Newark.

March 27th, 2018 | 6:00pm
Express Newark Lecture Hall
54 Halsey Street, Room 213
Newark, NJ 07102

The L+M Lecture Series brings to Express Newark prominent thinkers in the world of the public arts and humanities to reflect on the foundations and aims of our practice. Deeply rooted in our city and looking out to the nation and the world, and firmly grounded in notions of place and social justice, its goal is to bring the arts and humanities to bear on contemporary life in Newark and beyond.

Carrie Mae Weems is considered one of the most influential contemporary American artist. Weems had investigated family relationships, cultural identity, sexism, class, political systems, and the consequences of power. Her work had been in numerous solo and group exhibitions at major national and international museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.

This event is free and open to the public. Reception will follow.
