  • Dorothea Tanning’s final paintings—made in a last burst of creative energy between 1997 and 1998, when the artist was eighty-six—depict imaginary floral specimens.

  • Heinzmann’s latest expressionist paintings feature bright splashes of pigment on epoxy-covered aluminum whose hard surfaces have been punctured with Fontanaesque cuts. Rhythmic, vibrant, and textural, these paintings evoke the perverse beauty of detonations, eruptions, and gashes.

  • Featuring works spanning the 1930s–1970s—a period during which Wifredo Lam worked in Cuba, France, America, and Spain—this retrospective confirms the Cuban artist’s place at the center of global modernism. Often compared to avant-gardists like Picasso and Fontana, Lam addresses the social injustices of his day using a signature style of hybrid figures.
