« Calder-Picasso » Exhibition, two masters of modern art in dialog
Alexander Calder (1898-1976) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) – two of the most seminal figures of twentieth-century art – innovated entirely new ways to perceive grand themes. While the resonances between them are filled with endless possibilities, a key connection can be found in their exploration of the void, or the absence of space.
The exhibition displays approximately 120 works that explore how these two artists, each in his own very different ways, engaged with the concepts of space.
The “Calder-Picasso” exhibition is organized in partnership with the Calder Foundation, New York, and the Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA). It is a coproduction with the Museo Picasso Málaga where it will be held from September 24, 2019, to February 2, 2020.
