Art21 and Studio Museum Present

A Conversation with Carrie Mae Weems and Patricia J. Williams 

Thursday, October 15, 7p.m.

Columbia University in the City of New York

Jerome Green Hall, Room 102

West 116th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive

 

In celebration with the Season 5 premiere of the Peabody Award-winning television series Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century on PBS this October, Art21 is partnering with the Studio Museum in Harlem to present this event.

The program begins with a screening of the Art:21 segment which presents Carrie Mae Weems and explores her body of work from her first major photo-documentary series—Family Pictures and Stories (1978-84) to her recent work Constructing History: A Requiem to Mark the Moment (2008). The conversation between Weems and Patricia J. Williams, the James L. Dohr Professor of Law at Columbia University will continue to investigate the critical issues of race, history, and memory through the artist’s work while making additional connections to current cultural and political events of our time. 

This event is hosted by Columbia University, Office of Government and Community Affairs and is free and open to the public. 

All spaces for this event have been reserved with a short wait-list.  Any further available spaces will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
