The touring exhibition “Calder-Picasso,” which debuted at the Musée national Picasso-Paris, will be at the high June 26 to Sept. 19. The show will feature more than 100 paintings, sculptures and works on paper spanning their careers.
Conceived by the artists’ grandsons, Bernard Ruiz–Picasso and Alexander S. C. Rower, and organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the exhibition focuses on the two artists’ exploration of the void, or the absence of space, which both artists defined from the figure through to abstraction.
“Calder and Picasso are among the most consequential artists of the 20th century,” said Rand Suffolk, the High’s Nancy and Holcombe T. Green, Jr., director. “Their work remains undeniably compelling, and although we’ve presented it separately on many occasions, this exhibition offers the chance to see it from a particularly unique perspective.”
Details on tickets will be forthcoming.
