Extensive retrospective of the great multidisciplinary artist Carrie Mae Weems (Portland, Oregon, 1953) that covers her entire career, and exhibition on the KBr Flama project, which aims to give visibility to the youngest talent of the photography schools of Barcelona.
Carrie Mae Weems. A great twist of the possible
The exhibition on Carrie Mae Weems (Portland, Oregon, 1953) has been organized in collaboration with the Foto Colectania Foundation, where part of the exhibition is on display, and the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart. This exhibition chronologically reviews his entire oeuvre and aims to highlight Weems' approach to photography as one ahead of its time. Weems' works speak of violence that is deliberately exercised, but at the same time leaves room for scenes of intimacy and love. Carrie Mae Weems has explored issues of gender identity, as in Family Pictures & Stories. In her series on Africa she reflects on how the Other has been viewed throughout history.

Their projects were selected through a rigorous viewing process, in which Horacio Fernández, Carles Guerra, Joana Hurtado and Arianna Rinaldo participated as jurors.
