RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
September 21, 2020 – May 30, 2021
CARRIE MAE WEEMS SOCIAL STUDIES 101 PROJECT
“Carrie Mae Weems’s work includes the marginalized and also addresses the inequities of COVID-19. Like a support system, her photographs relieve me of pressure so I can express my anxiety. Much of the stress my family and I have gone through endures. It runs deep, too big to voice, but it can be danced through my body.” –Laura Gutierrez, Choreographer | Dancer based in Winston-Salem
Laura Gutierrez, a dance artist based in Winston-Salem, is one of 12 North Carolina artists selected by the American Dance Festival to present work in front of several installations of the outdoor exhibition created by artist Carrie Mae Weems.
Videos of other dance artists in this series will be released each week. Watch this series of videos of original choreography in response to RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!.
