Haiti and the Humanities: In Extremis: Death and Life in 21st-Century Haitian Art Teacher Workshop ARTalk
This is the first of a two-part teacher workshop that explores the multilayered and interdisciplinary connections teachers may draw from the exhibition In Extremis: Death and Life in 21st-Century Haitian Art. Join exhibition curators Donald Cosentino and Patrick Polk in gallery walkthroughs and explore Haitian literature, history, and art with master teacher Neil Anstead. Haitian and Caribbean scholars will discuss works on view and photographer Leah Gordon and Haitian artist André Eugène, both of whom have works featured in the exhibition, will share their experiences in Port-au-Prince’s art community today.
Teachers will receive curricular materials. Due to the complex nature of the works on display, attendance of at least one of these sessions, or another gallery walk-through, is required for teachers who wish to bring their students to view the exhibition. Second session on September 22.
Information and reservations: 310-825-7325.
Fowler members $30; non-members $60 (fee covers both sessions).
