Wilfredo Lam in North America

Wifredo Lam in North America, a retrospective exhibition of Cuban artist Wifredo Lam, opened at the Haggerty Museum in Milwaukee in mid-October. The exhibition continues through mid-January.

The exhibition shows the importance of Lam’s role among the School of Paris artists including Picasso and Surrealist artists including Andre Breton, and his contribution as an Afro-Cuban art after his return to Cuba in the 1940s, according to Curtis Carter, the Marquette University professor and founding director of the Haggery Museum of Art. The exhibition features more than 60 works by the Cuban-born Lam. Carter curated the exhibit.

The exhibition will also travel to the Miami Art Museum, The Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, California and the Salvador Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, Florida.

  1. Wilfredo Lam is exceptional,I visited his exhibit in miami recently. I almost believed that his work could come to life once it was under the lighting as if he painted knowing just that, absolutely beautiful and also tranquil. I really enjoy his work, I have 3 of his paintings .I am so glad that I made the trip to Florida to really view and appreciate what wilfredo Lams work represents.
