Pablo Picasso's Cubist experiments tackle the problem of how to capture reality on a two-dimensional canvas. Yet he created sculptures that catapult ideas of collapsing spatial relationships back into three dimensions. In this session, we will explore various expressions of Picasso's Cubism, from the near-monochrome works of the early 1910s to the influence of collage in both painting and sculpture. This session meets at the entrance of Gallery 1, Floor 5.

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.
