Cue up JAY-Z’s “Picasso Baby” and make your way to East Asia this summer because the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) in Bejing will host “the most significant exhibition of work by Pablo Picasso ever to take place in China,” according to the museum. In conjunction with the Mussśe Picasso in Paris, the exhibition spans nearly three decades of Picasso’s career (between 1893 and 1921) with 103 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper.
“The three decades under consideration here were a period of artistic discovery and ferment for the young Picasso, whose style underwent numerous changes, from the academic realism of his student days to his post-war return to classical style after the great Cubist adventure,” said UCCA in a statement.
The exhibition will run from June 15 through September 1 at Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, 4 Jiuxianqiao Road, Chaoyang Qu, Beijing Shi, China. Head over to UCCA’s site for more information on the massive presentation.
