Until August 15, 2016, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid presents an important exhibition of Wifredo Lam (Sagua La Grande, 1902 – Paris, 1982), covering multiple aspects of the trajectory of the Cuban artist. The exhibition, curated by Catherine David and Manuel Borja-Villel, includes a large number of works -paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics- and documents-letters, photographs, magazines, books- that permit to restore the complexity of Lam’s work and relocate it in its geopolitical, artistic and intellectual context.
Alongside the exhibition, a catalog is published including contributions by Catherine David, Kobena Mercer and Paula Barreiro López.
