Synopsis: MINNESOTA MODERN embodies mid-century Modernism in the work of four brilliant painters. All had studied outside of the region, including Europe, absorbing Modernist advances and trends along the way. All were deeply committed to and lived in Minnesota.
They came from different circumstances, with different expressions of their visions. Clem Haupers was born in St. Paul, Elof Wedin in Sweden, Cameron Booth in Pennsylvania, Dewey Albinson in Minneapolis. Wedin had a day job as a skilled laborer; others taught, Haupers administered. Their works appear in museums and collections throughout the Midwest but rarely in art history texts. MINNESOTA MODERN honors and pays tribute to their unparalleled contributions to the artistic legacy of Minnesota and America at large.
