picasso and the allure of the south
Join us for this installment of our Coffee with a Curator series, where Museum Staff or invited guests speak on a range of Dalí-inspired topics.
To coincide with the opening of Picasso and the Allure of the South, Senior Curator of Education Peter Tush will explore this exhibit, which presents Picasso’s career in relation to the Pyrenees mountains and the Mediterranean sea. Stretching from early Cubism through his final decade’s work, the work from various periods connect with the locations where Picasso chose to live. From Cadaqués to Céret to Cannes, these places animated Picasso’s life and imagination. In each site, Picasso underwent great changes yet returned over and over to his fundamental subjects – poetry, song, bullfighting, male and female relationships.
Location: The Dalí Museum’s Will Raymund Theater (registration required), with overflow seating available in the Raymond James Community Room or live on YouTube (link below)
