Wifredo Lam

30 Sept-15 Feb. This exhibition at the Centre Pompidou repositions the work of Cuban artist Wifredo Lam (1902-1982) within the context of international modern art history.

Although he gained recognition by important museums from 1940 onwards, Lam's work remains subject to "considerable misunderstanding and simplistic enthusiasm", according to exhibition organisers. Lam revived Afro-Cuban art, creating his own style which was influenced by other 20th century trends. He was praised by Picasso and other great artists along the way.

Predominantly a painter, Lam also worked with sculpture, ceramics and printmaking in his later life. The Paris retrospective features more than 400 works, including paintings, drawings, photographs, reviews and rare books, displayed in chronological order.

11.00-21.00. Tues closed.
