Since their creation, Pablo Picasso’s works have resonated in the contemporary world for all kinds of reasons. During and after the artist’s lifetime, numerous contemporary artists have found in his output motifs, themes and problems on which to work and develop their own art.
In any event, artists reaffirmed their intention to address the product of Picasso’s explorations and creativity and, if necessary, to surpass it. Numerous works from all periods are reminiscent of the innovative techniques with which he experimented: from welded iron to painted bronze, from collage to the use of everyday materials as supports or components of works, and also ceramics, which Picasso incorporated into the artistic language of the second half of the twentieth century.
In connection with The Echo of Picasso, the Museo Picasso Málaga is sharing the reflections of the exhibition’s curator, Éric Troncy, and those of some of the artists featured in the exhibition, whose works can be interpreted as created ‘in opposition to’ the meaning Picasso’s oeuvre has today.
