During Love Your Body Week, the Women’s Center is hosting a gallery walk + talk through Carrie Mae Weems: Strategies of Engagement at the McMullen Museum. The curators, Boston College English professor Robin Lydenberg and history of photography scholar Ash Anderson, will focus on the artist’s use of self-portraiture to cast off and renegotiate negative representations of race and gender in America. Guests are welcome to add to the discussion and ask questions along the way. Light refreshments will be served.
