Now to September 16, 2018 see Face to Face: From Yesterday to Today, Non-Western Art and Picaso
Face To Face: From Yesterday to Today, Non-Western Art and Picasso presents a comparison of Pablo Picasso’s works with those of non-Western artists, based on an anthropology of art. This juxtaposition raises questions on both sides (nudity, sexuality, impulses and loss) via plastic parallel solutions (disfiguring or deconstructing the body, for instance). It also explores traditions, tasks and major works of art defined as “tribal.”
