April 8, 2023 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and thus the year will represent a celebration of his work and his artistic legacy in France, Spain and internationally. For this occasion, the French and Spanish governments have organized a large-scale transnational event through a bi-national commission, bringing together the cultural and diplomatic administrations of both countries.
Supported by renowned cultural institutions in Europe and the United States, the program of the Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 will be structured around some fifty exhibitions and events that, as a whole, trace a historiographical approach to Picasso’s work.
In Europe and the United States, the exhibitions and associated programs of the Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 will therefore highlight the artist’s influence throughout the 20th century and his continued reference for artists of the 21st century through a variety of approaches. 42 exhibitions are currently planned. 16 in Spain; 12 in France; 2 in Germany; 2 in Switzerland; 1 in Monaco; 1 in romania; 1 in Belgium, and we will highlight below the 7 exhibitions scheduled for here in the USA.
Below, we list where the celebratory events will be held in the New York area from May into January, 2024. As we get closer to the dates for each event, more information will be provided.
Organized by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Obama Portraits will travel across the U.S. from June 2021 through October 2022, reaching millions of people who might not otherwise have an opportunity to view these remarkable paintings.
The much anticipated portraits will be arriving at The Brooklyn Museum of Art this August as part of a five-city tour throughout the United States, beginning the tour appropriately enough, at The Art Institute of Chicago, the location of ‘Barack & Michelle’s’ first date!
