RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
On view now through December 30, 2020
CARRIE MAE WEEMS SOCIAL STUDIES 101 PROJECT
Duke Chapel will host an online workshop, “Signs of Hope: Arts and Activism,” using the RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! outdoor exhibition as a starting place to reflect on issues of faith and justice in Durham. The outdoor exhibition and public awareness campaign by nationally renowned artist Carrie Mae Weems emphasizes the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on the lives of communities of color, through large-scale banners and window clings, posters, street signs and more.
The first part of this workshop will include a presentation by Marshall N. Price, PhD, chief curator and Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum. A community leader and a student will also each speak about connections among art, faith, and justice. The second part of the workshop will allow participants to share their own reflections.
