Days of exhibition


This panoramic exhibition features paintings, works on paper, and sculptures on loan from the Musée national Picasso-Paris, the largest public collection of Pablo Picasso’s works in the world. The exhibition explores the artist’s life-long fascination with the body as a means of conveying a range of experiences, from love and sexuality to conflict, anxiety, and despair. Highlights include major paintings from most phases of Picasso’s career, as well as more intimate works that give insight into his creative process.  Viewers will see how Picasso upended Western traditions by dismantling and reconstructing the body to signify psychological rupture and transformation.

Picasso. Figures is organized in collaboration with the Musée national Picasso-Paris. It was conceived and organized by Emilia Philippot, Curator, and François Dareau, Associate Curator.
