Picasso Mania - Oct. 7th 2015 to Feb. 29th 2016
The exhibition explores the fruitful confrontation that contemporary artists have been conducting since the 1960s with the work of Picasso. It takes a simultaneously chronological and thematic approach to the critical and artistic highlights of Picasso's career and the myth that gradually built up around his name. The great stylistic phases and emblematic works by Pablo Picasso (Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, Guernica) are put alongside contemporary creations, grouped by artist (Hockney, Johns, Lichtenstein, Kippenberger, Warhol, Basquiat and Jeff Koons). General curator: Didier Ottinger, assistant director of the Musée national d'Art moderne - Centre Pompidou Curators: Diana Widmaier-Picasso, art historian; Emilie Bouvard, curator at the Musée national Picasso-Paris Exhibition design: bGc studio Exhibition organized by the Réunion des musées nationaux Grand Palais, the Centre Pompidou and the Musée national Picasso-Paris.
