RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!
The Nasher Museum is collaborating with Duke Arts and Duke Health to present an unprecedented outdoor exhibition and public awareness campaign by nationally renowned artist Carrie Mae Weems. The project, called RESIST COVID / TAKE 6!, emphasizes the disproportionate impact of the deadly virus on the lives of communities of color, through large-scale banners and window clings, posters, street signs and more.
RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! has taken shape on the exterior walls and windows of the Nasher Museum and Rubenstein Arts Center. The installation will expand along the length of the Arts Corridor, from the Sarah P. Duke Gardens gate to Campus Drive street pole banners to the Carpentry Shop (home of the MFA EDA program). Later in the fall, RESIST COVID / TAKE 6! will extend into the surrounding community.
