Léger: Modern Art and the Metropolis
Join exhibition curator Anna Vallye on a tour through the colorful galleries of Léger: Modern Art and the Metropolis
. See how Léger and his contemporaries were inspired by the energy and movement of the modern city to combine different arts into their own work. A sculpture expresses motion like a film, paintings become like advertising posters, and color combines with architecture to form murals, all working together to create a new vision of urban space brought to life.
