The Picasso Century | Picasso in dialogue with sixty artists

The Picasso Century, developed by the Centre Pompidou and the Musée national Picasso-Paris, charts the artistic career of Pablo Picasso in dialogue with sixty artists, including his contemporaries Guillaume Apollinaire, Georges Braque, Salvador Dalí, Alberto Giacometti, Françoise Gilot, Valentine Hugo, Marie Laurencin, Dora Maar, André Masson, Henri Matisse, Dorothea Tanning and Gertrude Stein. Featuring more than 170 works, including over seventy by Picasso, this Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition reveals how Picasso influenced and was influenced by the artistic community around him – showing at NGV International from 10 June to 9 October 2022.

An accompanying NGV-exclusive kids’ exhibition provides insight into some of the groundbreaking artistic innovations of the twentieth century, while hands-on activities, including collage, drawing, and making sculptures, encourage young audiences to experiment with everyday materials and express their own ideas.
