The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis will present the first major solo-exhibition of Montréal-based artist Hajra Waheed. The presentation will include video, sound installation, drawing, and sculpture to explore themes of unity across borders. Waheed will create a new body of work that will expand and continue her interest in ideas of transnational solidarity, as well as present a diverse array of recent work, including sound, installation, painting, works on paper, and poetry. Waheed’s exhibition at CAM will be her most ambitious to date in terms of scale, materiality, medium, and the complexity of issues it addresses. The exhibition is organized for the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis by Wassan Al-Khudhairi.
The Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program was launched in 2007 in celebration of the Foundation’s 20th Anniversary. This unprecedented program donated over 28,500 photographs by Andy Warhol to educational institutions across the United States. More than 180 college and university museums, galleries and art collections throughout the nation participated in the program, each receiving a curated selection of original Polaroid photographs and gelatin silver prints.
