WorldView: Brazil

Every thinking mind needs a world view. This half-day seminar for students grades 9–12 builds on the cross-cultural understandings and perspectives that engage and influence many contemporary artists. Taking inspiration from the center-wide Via Brasil initiative, this year’s program features two enlightening films, Wasteland (Feb 13) and Doméstica (Feb 20), and the exhibition Cruzamentos: Contemporary Brazilian Art, on view at the Wexner Center February 1–April 20, 2014.

Both film screenings are followed by an open-forum panel discussion with special guests to be announced. Each student should bring their own brown bag lunch; we will provide drinks and a snack. Note that the exhibition tour does not include lunch.

You may choose one, two, or all three experiences for your program. Bus subsidies are available. Visit the WorldView blog at wexworldview.edublogs.org for teaching and learning resources.

Schedule your tour at least three weeks in advance by contacting the Education Department at (614) 292-6493 or edweb@wexarts.org. Register for the film screenings at the Teacher Season Preview on September 26, or visit tickets.wexarts.org after September 26. For more information, call Dionne Custer Edwards at (614) 292-7008 or email dcusteredwards@wexarts.org.
