The Picasso Celebration 1973-2023: Collaborating Governments and Cultural Institutions

The Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 is an initiative by the French and Spanish governments to honor the life and work of the artist. Its primary goal is to showcase the career of a predominantly European artist who has globally disseminated symbols that are universally recognized, such as Guernica. It is an opportunity to review and understand the artist’s work and to appreciate his contribution to the art world.

The major international symposium, which aims to bring together all the partners, museum institutions, research centers, and researchers around “Picasso in the 21st century: Historical and cultural issues,” will be held on December 2023, at UNESCO in Paris.

The Guggenheim Museum will showcase the exhibition ‘Young Picasso in Paris,’ focusing on the artist’s early works during his formative years in Paris. The museum will also put particular emphasis on Picasso’s oil painting, ‘Le Moulin de la Galette.’

The Brooklyn Museum will feature the exhibition ‘It’s Pablo-matic According to Hannah Gadsby,’ curated by Hannah Gadsby, a comedian and art lover who explores the relationship between Picasso’s work and contemporary art.
