A GUIDE TO THE EXHIBITION FOR TEACHERS

This teacher resource guide accompanies the Haggerty Museum of Art’s exhibition Wifredo Lam in North America. The guide is designed to provide ideas, activities and resources that explore issues raised by the exhibition. The guide and the exhibition focus on the varied historical and social influences that have contributed to Wifredo Lam’s culturally rich, visually engaging and emotionally compelling art.

Wifredo Lam in North America--on view at the Haggerty Museum from October 11, 2007 through January 21, 2008—represents the little-examined, yet significant, impact of Wifredo Lam’s work on the development of modern art in the United States. The exhibition features over sixty works by the Cuban-born artist from major museums, galleries and private collections from across the United States and the Caribbean. Lenders to the exhibition include: The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the Miami Art Museum, Houston’s Menil Collection, the Smithsonian Institution’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C., and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Wifredo Lam in North America will travel to the following museums: Miami Art Museum (February 8-May 18, 2008), Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, California (June 12-August 31, 2008) and the Salvador Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, Florida (October 2-January 10, 2009).
