Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s death, Elmhurst Art Museum joins a global movement of shows looking back at the artist’s work in Picasso: 50 Years Later, a celebration of his unmistakable influence on modern art.
Organized in three parts, the exhibition introduces Picasso in the context of his contemporaries, like Alexander Archipenko, Fernand Léger, and Joan Miró. The museum also debuts a series of linocut prints from a private collection, which will later embark on a tour titled Picasso and the Progressive Proof. And Chicago-based contemporary artists Laura Berger, Liz Flores, Richard Hull, Leasho Johnson, and José Lerma highlight how the artist’s legacy is reappraised and reimagined in figurative work being made today.
Picasso: 50 Years Later continues through January 27, 2024, in Elmhurst, Illinois. Visit the museum’s website for more information and to plan your visit.
