The Tate Modern will be exploring the fifty year career of Wifredo Lam, with the first major museum exhibition of his works in London since 1952.

If you'd like to pigeon-hole Wifredo Lam, then you can call him a global modernist, but his work really lies somewhere between the East and West, between Surrealism and tradition, between Africa and the Caribbean, and Europe and America.

He trained in Madrid and Paris, mixing with the Cubists and Surrealists, before moving to Cuba during the Second World War. His work then went on to define new ways of painting the New World, and was greeted with both consternation and acclaim.
