Imagining New Worlds: Wifredo Lam, José Parlá, Fahamu Pecou
High Museum of Art, Atlanta, Georgia
14 February – 24 May 2015

Retrospective (organised by the McMullen Art Museum, Boston College) of the Cuban twentieth-century artist Wifredo Lam (1902-1982) alongside responses to his legacy by contemporary artists. Traces his career from his early studies in Madrid, his move to Paris in 1938 where he became a member of the Surrealists in the 1940s before he developed his signature fusion of Cubism, Surrealism, Santería imagery and vivid Afro-Caribbean symbolism.
The exhibition will transfer to the Pompidou Centre, Paris, in September 2015.
