The AFTV is pleased to invite AFTV members and guests
to an AFTV Cultural / PL Event for the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, The Picasso Century
This world-premiere exhibition developed for the NGV by the Centre Pompidou and the Musée national Picasso-Paris, features over 70 works by Picasso alongside over 100 works by more than 50 of his contemporaries, drawn from premier French national collections, as well as the NGV Collection.
It charts the extraordinary career of Pablo Picasso in dialogue with the many artists, poets and intellectuals with whom he intercepted and interacted throughout the 20th century, including 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-their diverse influences, encounters and collaborative relationships that steered Picasso through many distinct artistic periods, such as his Blue Period, Cubism and Surrealism.
