Try fitting in three decades of stunning visual work in just three months! Presently, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts is displaying the socially conscious career of Carrie Mae Weems, with over 200 powerful images, video, audio and text displays. Carrie’s thought-provoking works make anyone ponder today’s current social issues from race, gender and class to equality and social justice. The exhibit, Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video runs now through January 13, 2013.

The digital, interactive nature of Carrie Mae Weems exhibition lends itself to mobile integration. Now, visitors planning their trip to the Frist Center, or those that might not make it before January, have the opportunity to peruse through the multitude of projects right from their mobile device. By viewing the same videos and images on display at the museum, visitors can engage from any location. Frist’s Toursphere app also has an exclusive behind the scenes look at the exhibition selection and installation.

With this exhibit at the Frist Center being the first of five stops, the Frist Center turned this static exhibit into a more accessible destination for all that want to explore the insightful artwork of Carrie Mae Weems.
