Carrie Mae Weems: Heave

May 4 – July 27, 2019

Organized by the Art Museum at the University of Toronto and co-presented with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Justina M. Barnicke Gallery

Throughout her artistic trajectory, noted American artist Carrie Mae Weems has undertaken sustained investigations of social conflict. The multi-part installation Heave combines photography, video, news media sampling, as well as ephemera to probe the devastating effects of violence in our life and time. The complex installation explores the spectacle of violence in our contemporary lives relocating this present within sustained histories of conflict and uprising.

Weems’ exhibition in five parts, sited at distinct locations across Toronto, represents the artist’s first solo exhibition in Canada. Her work will be presented in two gallery exhibitions, including a new iteration of her recent project, Heave (2018), at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto. The CONTACT Gallery will display a series of Weems’ photographic works, and present three major public art installations downtown, including on the exterior of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the headquarters of the Toronto International Film Festival. More information.

Supported by Liza Mauer and Andrew Sheiner, Cindy and Shon Barnett, anonymous donor, and The Stonefields Foundation.
