For the first time in the Middle East, an exhibition comprising over 267 pieces of artwork from Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, entitled “Picasso and Miró, Passion and Poetry”, will be on display at The Annex, Burj Khalifa.
The exhibition will focus on lithographs, ceramics, and graphics, sourced from private collections around the world in an effort to explore the artistic journey of two of history’s most important cultural icons.
As Sergio Gaddi, the curator of the show explains, “The exhibition’s narrative path crosses figures and themes that characterized the graphic experience of Pablo Picasso and Joan Mirò, linked with a fil rouge which intertwined their lives. However, the exhibition is not merely a journey which tells a dialectic relationship between history and contemporaneity, but also a dialogue between the signs of tradition lived and interpreted by the artists, and the energies that lighted up their creativity.”
The exhbition, which is being brought to the region courtesy of Alpha Soul, an art and culture development company based in the UAE, will be open from noon to 10:00 p.m. from March 7th through May 17th. Tickets can be purchased at Platinumlist for 125 AED.
