Weems, in her quintessential collaborative spirit, has taken on this project with her friend and colleague Pierre Loving. Creating work that mimics a mode of information dispersal so ubiquitous within urban life, Weems and Loving move outside the confines of the institution and into the reaches of the community. In addition to this presentation at the SCAD Museum of Art, TAKE 6! will also be on view at SCAD Atlanta, bringing its message to the attention of residents in one of the American cities where it is most urgently needed.
With every work she creates, Weems speaks to our humanity and the complexity of our interconnected experiences. At the root of her discourse is the question: How do you measure a life?
