Picasso-Calder

Visit
Calder Foundation New York / ADAGP, Paris / RMN-Grand Palais - Béatrice Hatala / Succession Picasso 2018

In company of Curator Claire Garnier

The exhibition will comprise approximately 120 works that explore how these two artists, each in their own very different ways, engaged with the void and defied the movement of masses.
Calder and Picasso wanted to present or represent non-space, whether by giving definition to a subtraction of mass, as in Calder’s sculpture, or by expressing contortions of time, as in Picasso’s portraits. Calder externalized the void through curiosity and intellectual expansion, engaging unseen forces in ways that challenge dimensional limitations, or what he called -grandeur-immense-. Picasso personalized the exploration, focusing on the emotional inner self. He brought himself inside each character and collapsed the interpersonal space between author and subject.
