As a pioneer of uncompromising modernism, Fernand Léger (1881-1955) worked constantly with filmmakers, poets, choreographers, composers and architects. This first Belgian retrospective of the French artist since 1956 illustrates the ground-breaking forms that can result from these interdisciplinary exchanges. You will discover how Léger’s impressive and contrasting work encouraged generations of artists to seek the essence of beauty in a clear style with bright colours.
The exhibition « Fernand Léger. Beauty is everywhere » is conceived and organized by the Centre Pompidou-Metz in partnership with BOZAR, Centre for Fine Arts Brussels. It is realized with the exceptional support of the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d'art moderne - Centre de création industrielle.
