Panel Discussion: Picasso on the Hudson
February 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am UTC-5
In 2023–24, numerous exhibitions marking the 50th anniversary of death of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) took place around the world. New York witnessed important interventions held at the Guggenheim Museum, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and MoMA, in addition to the exhibition currently on view at the Hispanic Society, Picasso and Spanish Classics (November 2, 2023 – February 4, 2024). This roundtable brings together several of the curators responsible for these exhibitions for a discussion of the artist and the experiences of organizing these shows. The panelists will share their thoughts on the different perspectives on this celebrated figure, and how we might think of him going forward.
The event also grants visitors the opportunity to visit The Hispanic Society’s exhibition, Picasso and Spanish Classics, before the exhibition closes on Sunday, February 4, 2024. The exhibition explores how Spanish literature impacted the work of Picasso as an important lens through which to understand his artworks.
