Slow.Look.Live.
Carrie Mae Weems

Aug 7, 2020
4:00 PM
Acclaimed artist Carrie Mae Weems will discuss RESIST COVID/TAKE 6!, her new art initiative currently featured in the Aspen Times Artist Takeover series. Weems’s project alludes to recommendations that people stay six feet apart from one another during the COVID-19 pandemic and aims to draw attention to the ways in which the deadly virus has disproportionately impacted people of color. Printed on posters, billboards, flyers, and other public-facing platforms, Weems’s photo-based campaign seeks to heighten public awareness of the impact of social and economic disparity while also paying homage to the essential workers who have placed themselves in harm’s way during the pandemic. Weems will speak about the immediate messaging of this project and prompt a broader dialogue about the long-term toll on the communities hardest hit by the pandemic.

Initiated during this period of unprecedented physical distancing, Slow.Look.Live., offers an occasion to slow down and reflect with deeper intention on artistic processes and dialogues. Introducing a range of artists, curators, and thinkers, the new initiative focuses on how perception, creation, and community are being shaped by our various current geographical locations. Each week, we chart the relationships of our guests to the changing world, their immediate environments, and their studios. As we continually redefine how art can be made and experienced, Slow.Look.Live., will evolve indefinitely as a core program for Aspen Art Museum’s visitors and beyond.

Join a regional, national, and international group of participants on Fridays at 4 p.m. (MT) with Rachel Ropeik, AAM Learning Director, on Instagram Live and Instagram Stories @AspenArtMuseum.
