Musée de Quai Branly, Paris
28 March – 23 July 2017
As evidenced by the exhibition’s documents, letters, objects and photographs, Picasso’s personal collection of the arts of Africa, Oceania, the Americas and Asia accompanied him in his moves from one studio to the next. The aim is not to show any eventual influences of primitive art on Picasso, but rather to show the attraction that the arts of Africa, Oceania, the Americas and Asia held for him.
The second, more conceptual part of the exhibition offers a comparative view of the artist’s works with those of non-Western artists. The resulting juxtapositions reveal the similar issues these artists addressed (for example: nudity, sexuality, impulses and loss) through parallel 3-dimensional solutions such as deforming or deconstructing bodies, for example).
