Celebration Picasso 1973-2023 Exhibition List News

Picasso lovers worldwide, 2023 is the year for you. To mark the 70th anniversary of his death, the governments of France and Spain worked together on a year-long suite of retrospective exhibitions dubbed “Celebration Picasso 1973-2023”, which will examine particular periods within his life and the legacy he’s left on the art world since.

Kicking off the list is a contemporary showcase at the Musée Picasso in Paris presented in collaboration with fashion designer Paul Smith. Not long after, the Museo Picasso in Málaga and the Guggenheim Bilbao will showcase Picasso: Matter and Body that will focus on the artist’s lifelong sculptural practice, often seen as secondary to his oeuvre, but having played an essential aspect throughout his career. Similarly, the Musée Magnelli, Musée de la céramique-Vallauris and Museu del Disseny de Barcelona will highlight Picasso’s ceramic-based work.

In Madrid, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía will present Picasso 1906: the Turning Point and across the pond in New York City, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) will spotlight Picasso’s three-month excursion in Fontainebleau in the spring of 1921. Also in New York, the Brooklyn Museum will present a show co-curated by Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby that examines “the interconnected issues of misogyny, masculinity, creativity and ‘genius’, particularly around a complex, mythologized figure like Picasso”, according to the spokesperson of the museum.

It would be difficult to find another artist, living or dead, who has garnered more attention in a single year than Picasso in 2023. Check out the full list of exhibitions below.
