A time for children: The Museu Picasso in the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu

The academic year has come to an end and we have just finished yet another year of collaboration with the Department of volunteers of the Hospital de Sant Joan de Déu, in which for the past six years we have been collaborating with a children’s workshop aimed at the hospitalized children. The stay of a boy or girl in the hospital is often complex for the child and for their family surroundings, for obvious reasons of illness, worry, subjection to medical processes, the displacement from the usual family setting, and often boredom and/or apathy. In some cases, in which there have ...

The third edition of the cycle of Jaume Sabartés lectures, which is held each year in honour of the founder of the Museu Picasso, counted last week on the presence of Dr. Christopher Green as a guest speaker, who offered his vision about “Picasso and friends: Cubism as Realism, 1914-1918”. (more…)

2016 in the Museu Picasso

In the previous post we explained what the major milestones of 2015 had been: in this one we would like to present our projects for 2016, that we are beginning full of energy and with proposals in all the activity fields of the museum. With regard to our exhibition programme, we will present the exhibition Cubism and war. The crystal in the flame, which will be the main exhibition of the expositive season of the museum, focused on the survival of the European avant-garde artists established in Paris during the First World War. The response to the conflict of war was ...
