Museu Picasso, Barcelona - POST-PICASSO : Contemporary Reactions

- Date : 8th March 2014 to 29th June 2014
- Vernissage and press conference : 7th March 2014

- Curator : Michael FitzGerald
- Organisation and production : Museu Picasso, Barcelona

- This is the first exhibition dedicated to tracing the impact of Picasso on international contemporary art. Curated by renowned expert Michael FitzGerald, the show will explore the considerable influence of Picasso’s oeuvre on the art of today.

- Dr. FitzGerald, Professor of Fine Arts, Trinity College (USA), has developed Post-Picasso during the years since he curated Picasso and American Art for the Whitney Museum of American Art (2006-07). Post-Picasso will build on the substantial research of that exhibition to treat the chronological period from the decade before Picasso’s death in 1973 to the present.

- One of the most surprising upshots of the exhibition will be the evidence of Picasso’s importance for the art of the twenty-first century. The show will reveal how Picasso’s art and reputation continue to generate a fruitful dialogue with contemporary artists around the world, particularly his reputation as a paradigm of modernism, the issues of cultural hegemony galvanised by his introduction of non-Western sources into European art, and the debates over the position of painting and sculpture in contemporary practice. Similarly, the show will explore the impact of Picasso on artists working in a wide range of media, including video and photography, as well as painting and sculpture.

- Post-Picasso will be devoted to a select group of artists who have made very significant achievements in contemporary art through their engagement with Picasso. The exhibition will comprise 75 works selected from the oeuvres of approximately 42 artists living in more than 12 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America to present the remarkable geographical and chronological range of Picasso’s impact.

- The exhibition will not include works by Picasso. The museum’s premier collection of his art will be on view in the permanent galleries to create a dialogue between the work of contemporary artists and Picasso.
