Institution Walker Art Center

This Art Collector Set is intended to facilitate a self-guided visit through the Walker Art Center exhibition Abstract Resistance. It's aimed at high school, college, and adult visitors. Review the Set before coming to the Walker and/or carry it with you through the galleries by selecting the "printable view" from the Set Actions menu and printing a copy. If you're not able to come to the Walker, please feel free to use this Set in the classroom or at home. Keep in mind this Set introduces you to a handful of objects on view in the exhibition, but not each one. 

In this Set you will find the following resources:

  • Excerpts from texts written by the exhibition's curator, Yasmil Raymond, and other art historians
  • Quotes from the artists in the exhibition
  • A sampling of artworks from the exhibition with suggested discussion questions and background information on the artist and artwork
  • Audio and video files to preview in the classroom or at home prior to your visit

Because of graphic visual content and explicit language we recommend that high school teachers and college professors preview the exhibition before taking classes through it. We are not recommending this exhibition for K–8 students.

Abstract Resistance is on view in Galleries 4, 5 and 6 at the Walker Art Center through May 23, 2010.
