Carrie Mae Weems: A Land of Broken Dreams

Carrie Mae Weems: A Land of Broken Dreams is presented by Logan Center Exhibitions in conjunction with the multi-site exhibition Toward Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40, which explores the extent to which certain resources—air, land, water, and even culture—can be held in common. Raising questions about inclusion, exclusion, ownership, and rights of access, this project considers art’s vital role in society alongside its calls for vigilance in defending shared resources. Deploying the MacArthur Fellows Program as an “intellectual commons,” Toward Common Cause features new and recontextualized work by twenty-nine visual artists who have been named Fellows since the award program’s founding forty years ago, in 1981.

Carrie Mae Weems’s installation at the Logan Center Gallery features an array of media and objects—photography, video, texts, bric-a-brac, and furniture—through which Weems reimagines the Black Panther Party’s programs for young people in Chicago during the late 1960s and early 1970s. In the main gallery, visitors are invited to browse, sit, and explore a classroom setting replete with desks, chairs, books, a blackboard, View-Masters, and posters of historic Black leaders. A smaller gallery space, designed to resemble a theater, will screen video works by Weems. As a whole, this presentation probes notions of education and ideals for political parties, revolutions, and their leaders.

Carrie Mae Weems: A Land of Broken Dreams is presented by Logan Center Exhibitions in collaboration with the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago and is curated by Abigail Winograd, MacArthur Fellows Program Fortieth Anniversary Exhibition Curator; with Alyssa Brubaker, Exhibitions Manager; and Leigh Fagin, Senior Director of Programming and Engagement. This exhibition is made possible by support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The Reva and David Logan Foundation, and friends of the Logan Center.

Starts: October 10, 2021

Oct 14: Ida Applebroog: MONALISA

This exhibition, presented as part of Toward Common Cause, features an installation of Monalisa by American artist Ida Applebroog. Living in Southern California in 1969, Applebroog sought refuge from her life as a single mother in her bathtub, where she spent between two and three hours an evening drawing pictures of her body. This ritual eventually resulted in 160 portraits of Applebroog’s vagina. Packed away in 1974 and rediscovered in 2009, the drawings are installed as wallpaper on a wooden structure resembling a house. Curated by Dieter Roelstraete. Gallery open by appointment.

Starts: October 14, 2021
