  • This fall, TCNJ Art Gallery will open Carrie Mae Weems: The Usual Suspects. The exhibition includes recent photographic and video works questioning stereotypes that associate black bodies with criminality. Images from the All the Boys and The Usual Suspects series implicate these stereotypes in the deaths of black men and women at the hands of police, and confront the viewer with the fact of judicial inaction. Blocks of color obscuring faces point to the constructed nature of our notions of race and how these imagined concepts obscure humanity—here with very real and deadly outcomes. People of a Darker Hue, a meditative compilation of video, found footage, narration, and performance commemorates these deaths. Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Thursday 12-7 Friday 12-4 Sunday 1-3 And by appointment (tcag@tcnj.edu)
