Gary Nader Fine Art will be featuring an unprecedented exhibition of Wifredo Lam and Matta at The Armory Show. A curated selection of works from the most important and extensive collection of the two Masters of Surrealism.
For years, Gary Nader has paid homage to such great masters as Wifredo Lam and Roberto Matta. For each of these artists, their Paris years had a direct impact on the direction of their work. Whether it be Cubism, Abstraction or Surrealism that informed the course of their artistry, the Paris environment changed their work from the academic to the modern. Their encounters with and participation in the international avant-garde community in Paris both shaped the future direction of modern Latin American art and expanded the worldview of European artists. The core section of the exhibition will explore the different ways in which these artists chose to represent ideas of Latin America in their work.
