Fernand Léger. Beauty is everywhere

Centre Pompidou-Metz

NOW CLOSED

Centre Pompidou-Metz is celebrating the life and work of Fernand Léger, the painter of modern life. Part of the 40th anniversary of Centre Pompidou, this exhibition recounts his artistic career with a hundred major works and a series of documents illustrating his many artistic partnerships. A passionate and committed witness of his profusive century with a taste for knowledge and travel, Fernand Léger was interested in a broad array of domains: poetry, cinema, circus, dance, architecture all of which he nurtured in his art. Find out more about the Fernand Léger exhibition from the Centre Pompidou-Metz’s website.
