Why have we chosen to support The EY Exhibition: Wifredo Lam?

In conversation: Michel Driessen, Arts Sponsor Partner and TAS Markets leader of UK&I, EY, and Chris Dercon, Director of Tate Modern

Watch Michel and Chris discuss the global modernist artist, Wifredo Lam, and why we have chosen to support The EY Exhibition: Wifredo Lam.

Wifredo Lam was a true cosmopolitan artist and cosmopolitanism is incredibly important to EY, too.

– Chris Dercon

Wifredo Lam’s artwork was strongly inspired by the intersection of culture, politics and religion, most notably in Cuba – his country of birth. He left a legacy that challenges existing perceptions about modern art.

– Michel Driessen
