Born in Cuba in 1902, Wifredo Lam represents both the synergy and conflict born out of the merging of multiple cultural traditions: his mother was of Afro-Spanish heritage and his father, of Cantonese roots.


"Homecoming" marks Wifredo Lam’s first major solo presentation in Hong Kong and also the pivotal return of Lam to Asia - tracing his Chinese father’s lineage and studying the significance of the Chinese diaspora. 


An all-inclusive exhibition including prints, personal memorabilia, and paintings, Homecoming covers a range of Wifredo Lam’s key artistic periods: from his time in Havana and Spain in the 1920s to 1938, Paris from 1938 to 1940, Marseille in the early 1940s, and Cuba, France, and Italy in the 1950s and 60s. This exhibition is guest curated by Eskil Lam of the Wifredo Lam Estate, with Hain Yoon as assistant curator and support from Stephane Lam of Le Pavillon Rouge des Arts and the Wifredo Lam Estate.
