Join this British Sign Language Tour and take a closer look at the life of Cuban born artist Wifredo Lam

Predominantly a painter, Wilfredo Lam also worked with sculpture, ceramics and printmaking. Lam’s work explores ideas behind Surrealism and tradition, Africa and the Caribbean, Europe and America. Tracing a career of six decades, The Ey Exhibition: Wifredo Lam is the first museum exhibition in London since 1952 of this artist and confirms Lam’s place at the centre of global modernism.

During this tour we explore Lam’s relationships with artists and writers such as Pablo Picasso and André Breton.

This tour is delivered in British Sign Language by guide Dafydd Jones.
