A Climb Up the Mountain with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque
5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series
Saturday, October 16, 2010, 11:15 am
FREE for Gallery Members / $10 for non-members
With Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector
Georges Braque described his partnership with Pablo Picasso as “like two mountain climbers tied together.” In one of the most famous collaborations in the history of art, Braque and Picasso invented Cubism, one of the most influential movements of the twentieth century. Of those years, Braque said, “Picasso and I said things to one another that no one will ever say again . . . things that would be incomprehensible to others, but that gave us a great joy.”
The 5,000 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series continues through March 12, 2011. Throughout the series, Curator of Education Mariann Smith, Associate Curator of Education Nancy Spector, and guest speakers will use the Gallery’s Collection and other selected works to tell the story of art from ancient times through today.
Doors for all lectures open at 11 am.
