We open a new exhibition, curated by the acclaimed connoisseur Michael FitzGerald, that examines the responses of contemporary artists to the life and work of Pablo Picasso. ‘Post-Picasso: Contemporary Reactions‘ is the first exhibition to reveal the significant trace left by Picasso on contemporary art worldwide.
During his lifetime, Picasso’s influence on art was undisputed; however, during the last four decades his significance for contemporary artists has proven controversial. This exhibition addresses the question of whether Picasso continues to be important for contemporary art and considers the variety of ways in which artists are engaging his art.
This exhibition presents 58 works of 41 artists from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North America and Latin America divided into 5 sections: Guernica, Cubism, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, Blue and Rose Periods and Late Work.
Within the programme of activities organised around this exhibition we would like to emphasise the Round Table that will be held on Thursday 6th of March 2014, at 7.00 pm, with guests Michael FitzGerald (curator) and Bedri Baykam, Atul Dodiya, Ibrahim el-Salahi, Zhang Hongtu and Constanza Piaggio (artists), who will discuss their work and that of Picasso.
