Jose Camacho on Wilfredo Lam’s Mother and Child
How does a painting force us to confront what defines us?
Oct 27, 2023
In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, we invite staff members, artists, and special guests to share personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Jose Camacho, an assistant educator in the Department of Learning and Engagement, provides a look into how the ambiguity of Wilfredo Lam’s painting Mother and Child offers an opening for others to insert themselves into the artwork.
Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each month. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
