The museum’s regular collection, which features over 5,000 artworks from the late Spanish artist’s collection (including paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics, prints, engravings, photographs, notebooks and more) will also be on display.
The 24-hour program – the first of its kind – will offer interactive exhibits both inside and outside the hôtel particulier (not excluding its beautiful gardens), with events ranging from conferences, discussion panels and open air workshops to entertainment in the form of cinematic screenings, poetry readings, theatrical shows, orchestral concerts and DJ sets.
With appeal for both the old and young, “24 heures Picasso” will also feature family-friendly workshops to introduce children to his art (one workshop offers the chance to create their own drawing based on his techniques). You’ll also find enticing things like animated paintings, sculptures, food trucks and more.
Musicians, actors and circus performers, as well as notable art historians, curators and philosophers – all invited from from around the world to pay homage – will be present in all different areas of the museum throughout the night, exploring, explaining and expressing the many aspects of Picasso’s works.
