BOZAR is devoting an exhibition about one of the best-known modern artists, and a passionate observer of a bustling century: Fernand Léger. His painting broke with artistic conventions and sought to transcribe the fragmentation and syncopated rhythm of a fast-moving society. His environment was the urban landscape of cars and machinery. Before becoming a painter, Léger was an architect’s apprentice, and his special connection with architecture would stay with him. He shared the avant-garde poets’ fascination with new forms of visual communication like advertising and typography. He was enthralled by Charlie Chaplin and cinema, and throughout his career, Léger worked with directors, choreographers and composers, designing scenery and costumes. This remarkable exhibition aims to present every facet of this twentieth-century giant.


The exhibition « Fernand Léger. Beauty is everywhere » is conceived and organized by Centre Pompidou-Metz in partnership with BOZAR, Centre for Fine Arts Brussels. It is realized with the exceptional support of Centre Pompidou, Musée national d'art moderne - Centre de création industrielle.


We would also like to extend our thanks to our generous Patron.
