Picasso, Decidedly Mediterranean exhibition at the Picasso Museum, 4th June – 6th October 2019

Just as the Picasso-Méditerranée event (held by seventy institutions in ten Mediterranean countries) comes to a close, this new immersive exhibition at the Picasso Museum explores the deep attachment Picasso had with the Mediterranean – Spanish ports, the south of France, the Côté d’Azur…

Between his birth in Malaga, his stays in Barcelone and his visit’s to the Prado in Madrid, Picasso had a diverse view of Spain and Mediterranean culture.

This was complemented by times of rest in the south of France, a voyage to Italy in 1917 and the latter part of his left spent living near the Côte d’Azur, starting from 1948.

With an exceptional selection of items never seen together before – some of them never shown in Paris – the exhibition explores Picasso’s interpretation of the Mediterranean, a subject that he was perhaps better placed than anyone to explore.

Linke with the exhibition there is,

— a inaugural conference entitled La Méditerranée multiple de Picasso being held at the museum on 11th June at 6.30pm with the exhibition’s curators (book here),

— electronic music in the museum’s gardens on 7th September 2019 at 6.30pm as part of the Les Traversées du Marais festival, and

at the end of September, a book called livre Atlas Picasso de la Méditerranée will be published, finishing off the season of Picasso-Méditerranée, including elements from a number of exhibitions and events held throughout Europe since 2017.
