Showcasing more than 300 works spanning the artist’s entire career, the exhibition highlights the artist’s desire to manipulate diverse materials. Picasso’s relentless exploration of working on and with paper is featured in the many assembled collages of cut-and-pasted papers, sculptures from pieces of torn and burnt paper, documentary photographs and manipulated photographs on paper, and an array of printmaking techniques on paper supports.
The exhibition is curated by William H. Robinson of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Ann Dumas of the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and Emilia Philippot of the Musée national Picasso-Paris. A scholarly publication accompanies the exhibition. Picasso and Paper will be on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art from May 24 to August 23, 2020, in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Hall and Gallery.
