The Echo of Picasso

Nov 8 — Dec 16, 2023 | New York, Upper East Side

Almine Rech presents The Echo of Picasso in New York

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s death (April 8, 1973), Almine Rech is pleased to present The Echo of Picasso, a wide-ranging group exhibition curated by Eric Troncy, spanning across its two locations in the city, opening November 8, 2023.

The exhibition offers two perspectives: one that revisits a time in history wherein Picasso's contemporaries sought to challenge his work, and a second in which living artists today echo the Spanish artist’s oeuvre. As Michael Fitzgerald* described, "instead of being a potential adversary in life, in death, Picasso became a voluminous encyclopedia of ideas and images for artists.” 50 years since Picasso's death, the contemporary works on view still echo the formal, technical, and conceptual inventions of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition also allows us to see Picasso in a contemporary perspective.

*Excerpt from the text by Michael Fitzgerald - Kluger family Professor of Art History Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut - in Museo Picasso Malaga catalog, "The Echo of Picasso."

The Echo of Picasso will be opening simultaneously at both Almine Rech locations on Wednesday, November 8, from 5 to 7pm in Tribeca, and from 6 to 8pm in the Upper East Side that same evening.
