Picasso celebration: the collection in a new light!
- Picasso celebration: the collection in a new light!
April 8, 2023 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso** and thus sets the tone for the year to celebrate his work and artistic legacy in France, Spain and internationally.
The Musée Picasso-Paris has invited the British designer Sir Paul Smith for an exceptional exhibition showcasing the museum’s collection.
On the occasion of this anniversary year, the Musée national Picasso-Paris has invited the British designer Sir Paul Smith, known for his work on colour, tailoring and kitsch, to sign the artistic direction of an exceptional exhibition, honouring the museum's invaluable collection.
In a largely chronological tour allowing us to cross the whole of Picasso's creation and to tackle the most emblematic subjects of the artist's work, the designer has imagined a joyful dialogue between the masterpieces conserved in the museum and more contemporary works that invite us to take a new look at the collection while underlining the ever-present character of Picasso's work. The exhibition is punctuated by works by international contemporary artists such as Guillermo Kuitca, Obi Okigbo, Mickalene Thomas and Chéri Samba**, all of whom contribute to the same desire to open up new perspectives on the posterity of Picasso's work, by questioning his image and putting their own slant on some of his artistic innovations.
