Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video take center stage at Portland Art Museum. The exhibit presents more than 200 photographs, videos, and installations tracing the evolution of Weems’ career. On her 21st birthday, Weems received a camera as a gift and quickly realized its potential to express abstract political and social theories and incite change. Featuring some of her most groundbreaking work, Weems’ photograhy will challenge audiences by highlighting issues of power, race, and gender.
