Exploring Questions of Identity, Place, and Time, Who What When Where Opens April 10
SYRACUSE, NY (March 30, 2020): The Everson Museum of Art announces the opening of a new exhibition titled Who What When Where on Saturday, April 10.
Based on the iconic Carrie Mae Weems’ 1998 photographic series of the same name, Who What When Where uses the four fundamental words for narrative construction to explore how images are interpreted through the subjective lens of identity, place, time, and power. It will encourage exploration of how perception is impacted by the lived experience and belief systems that each individual brings to bear. Who What When Where will showcase works from the Everson Museum of Art’s permanent collection that ask—and answer—these questions from the artists’ point of view.
Spanning a variety of media and decades, Who What When Where features works by more than fifty artists and introduces several recent acquisitions that bring new and much needed perspectives to the Everson’s collection.
An accompanying Artist Talk series will welcome nationally and locally known artists featured in Who What When Where to share their unique points of view that inform the stories they tell through their work. The series will begin in April and speakers include Carrie Mae Weems, Ellen Lesperance, Sheila Pepe, Ehren Tool, David MacDonald, Ellen Blalock, and Peter B. Jones. Additional speakers and dates are being added. Continue to check everson.org/talkseries for the latest information
