Art ART ROUND UP: and ex­hi­bi­tion news

Tate Mod­ern, Lon­don Show­ing from: 8 March – 9 Septem­ber 2018

In March 2018 Tate Mod­ern will stage its first ever solo ex­hi­bi­tion of Pablo Pi­casso’s work, one of the most sig­nif­i­cant shows the gallery has ever staged. The EY Ex­hi­bi­tion: Pi­casso

1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy will take visi­tors on a month-by­month jour­ney through 1932, a time so piv­otal in Pi­casso’s life and work that it has been called his ‘year of won­ders’. More than 100 out­stand­ing paint­ings, sculp­tures and works on pa­per will demon­strate his pro­lific and rest­lessly in­ven­tive char­ac­ter. They will strip away com­mon myths to re­veal the man and the artist in his full com­plex­ity and rich­ness.

1932 was a time of in­ven­tion and re­flec­tion. Hav­ing re­cently turned 50, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Chris­tian Zer­vos, Pi­casso em­barked on the first vol­ume of what re­mains the most am­bi­tious cat­a­logue of an artist’s work ever made, list­ing more than 16,000 paint­ings and draw­ings. His paint­ings also reached a new level of sen­su­al­ity and he ce­mented his celebrity sta­tus as the most in­flu­en­tial artist of the early 20th cen­tury.

High­lights will in­clude Girl be­fore a Mir­ror, a sig­na­ture paint­ing that rarely leaves The Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art, and the leg­endary The Dream, a vir­tu­oso mas­ter­piece de­pict­ing the artist’s muse in dreamy aban­don, which has never been ex­hib­ited in the UK be­fore.
