Sign up for updates on Carrie Mae Weems during her extended residency at Grace Farms.

Critically acclaimed artist Carrie Mae Weems, deemed “one of the more interesting artists working in the gap between art and politics” by The New York Times, presented Past Tense on March 23, a new performance-based work featuring singers Eisa Davis, Francesca Harper, and Imani Uzuri; poet Carl Hancock Rux; dancer Vinson Fraley; and musicians Craig Harris, Eddie Allen, Calvin Jones, Adam Klipple, James Brandon Lewis, and Tony Lewis. Through music, text, projection, and video, the performance explores the enduring significance of the iconic character Antigone and her profound relevance to our contemporary moment.

The origins of Past Tense lie in Weems’s powerful work Grace Notes. Weems says, “While working on Grace Notes for months it occurred to me that I was telling the story of Antigone, wherein an innocent man dies by unjustified means, and his sister fights for the right to bury him honorably. But the wider community refuses her; her right to justice, and to peace, is denied.”

Past Tense is produced by THE OFFICE performing arts + film: Noah Bashevkin, Laurie Cearley, Olli Chanoff, Rachel Chanoff, Gabrielle Davenport, Catherine DeGennaro, Diane Eber, Chloe Golding, Lynn Koek.

Carrie Mae Weems also presented a Lecture at Grace Farms on Friday, March 15.
