Picasso: Peace and Freedom
Wednesday 19 May 2010
A major new exhibition will launch at Tate Liverpool later week, with over 150 works by Pablo Picasso set to go on display.
Picasso: Peace and Freedom is a fascinating new insight into the artist's life as a tireless political activist and campaigner for peace, challenging the widely held view of Picasso as creative genius, playboy and compulsive extrovert.
This is the first exhibition to examine in depth the artist's engagement with politics and the Peace Movement, and will reflect a new Picasso for a new time. The exhibition provides a timely look at Picasso's work in the Cold War era and how the artist transcended the ideological and aesthetic oppositions of East and West.
Picasso: Peace and Freedom will run at the Tate Liverpool from May 21 until August 30 2010. Admission is £10 (£8 concessions). Visit: tate.org.uk/liverpool for more information.
