« 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.

The Louvre Pyramid Turns 30
The Louvre Pyramid was inaugurated on March 29, 1989 by François Mitterrand, the President of the French Republic at the time. The event represents a highlight in the history of French museums.
Designed by the architect Ieoh Ming Pei, the Pyramid is a fitting symbol for a museum open to the world.
The festive events designed to celebrate the Pyramid throughout its anniversary year include "JR at the Louvre": the creation of a collaborative work on the scale of the Cour Napoléon by the artist JR, assisted by 400 volunteers (March 26 to 31, 2019).
Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Pyramid with the special collection "JR - The Secret of the Great Pyramid"
