Nashville's Frist Center for the Visual Arts, venue for the Sept. 19 reception on the opening night of APME Nashville 2012, will offer conference participants and guests an early look at an exhibition devoted to contemporary artist and photographer Carrie Mae Weems.
The exhibition -- the first major museum retrospective devoted to Weems’ work -- will open to the public on Sept. 21.
Weems is widely regarded as one of today’s most eloquent and respected interpreters of the African-American experience. The Frist exhibition contains 225 photographs, installations, and videos from more than 15 museums and private collections.
APME guests are invited to the Frist for this special presentation and for the annual APME Foundation auction.
Some auction items are up for early bidding. Take a look.
