    Wifredo Lam (08/02/2016)

    The Museum Exhibitions

    The retrospective on the Cuban painter Wifredo Lam (Sagua La Grande, 1902 – Paris, 1982) responds to a general desire to give an account of modernism in all its complexity, and aims to reinstate Lam's work in an international art history of which he is an essential player. The exhibition not only returns to the genesis of his work but also surveys the various phases and the conditions of the progressive reception and integration of an oeuvre patiently built up between Spain, Paris and Marseilles, and Cuba.
