Picasso & Dalí - Exposicion

Author: Reding

La exposición estudia por primera vez las relaciones entre dos figuras clave del arte del siglo XX. La tesis de la exposición supone un reto respecto a los modelos históricos convencionales que tratan a los dos artistas como figuras aisladas, míticas y auto-generadoras en relación a la estética y políticamente opuestas. La muestra presenta obras de Pablo Picasso y Salvador Dalí –pinturas, dibujos, grabados y esculturas– y documentos procedentes de más de 25 museos de arte y colecciones particulares de todo el mundo, gran número de las cuáles han sido cedidas en muy pocas ocasiones. El contacto entre ellos fue significativo. Estos momentos históricos estructurarán la exposición, proporcionando perspectivas desde las cuales analizar aspectos de dos de los principales artistas del arte del siglo XX.
