« Everybody knows Picasso ! »

From October 21 to November 18 2015

The young Ladies of Avignon, Guernica, Olga in an armchair, etc. Everybody knows Picasso. Many have attempted to replicate his style, could we go one better and attempt to interpret his works in our own manner? There is no singular way of approaching the master. Chose your period: blue, rose, cubist or surrealist. The boldest will construct the body with geometric forms, subordinate details to structure, reduce colours, interlock surfaces and volumes in space. Your images could engage a dialogue with sculpture much like he did with his paintings.

For the better part of his life, the artist played with photography, exploring the medium’s capacity to magnify and render reality to a mere abstraction. Appropriate his tools of distortion and deconstruction, and produce your own Picasso-inspired pictures. The jury comprised of Laurent Lebon (Director at the Picasso Museum in Paris), artist Amélie Harrault and photographer Gérard Rancinan will select the three most beautiful pictures. The three pictures that accumulate the most votes will win the famous wipplayers’ award!

Musée Picasso The ¡ Picasso ! anniversary exhibition presented on the five floors of Hôtel Salé illustrates the continuity and deep unity of the collection and the history of the museum. The Musée National Picasso-Paris has the world’s largest public collection of Pablo Picasso’s work, covering all his creative periods and all fields, including “Picasso’s Picassos” straight from the artist’s studio. Pablo Picasso’s personal archives and the museum’s archives are at the heart of this exhibition project. They echo the masterpieces and, as most of them have never been exhibited before, give a different interpretation of the life, creative process and circulation of the master’s artworks A large visual collage invites visitors to go on a tour of the five floors of Hôtel Salé starting with the history of the museum (basement), discover a chronological presentation of the major works (ground floor and 1st floor), then “Pablo Picasso – public figure” (2nd floor), and meet the “private Picasso” (3rd floor). This is a contemporary interpretation of Picasso’s works that alternates between rooms featuring dense displays and more intimate sequences. The exhibition at a glance : 4 distinct parts: the history of the museum, the collection masterpieces, Picasso the public figure, Picasso the private figure – 105 paintings (including 86 by Picasso) – 92 sculptures (85 by Picasso) including 22 ceramic pieces, 13 objects and 1 textile artwork – 192 graphic artworks (186 by Picasso) including 94 illustrations, 20 sketch books, 10 illustrated books, 62 prints and et 6 print matrices – 190 photographs – 1 contemporary installation – 4 films and about 30 INA extracts – 314 archives including 223 documents and correspondences, 38 periodicals, 31 publications and 22 objects website
