About Picasso Dance:

ARTE TV has invited eight contemporary choreographers of different ethnicities and sensibilities to participate in the Picasso Dance project. The invitees interpret the artistic and human legacy of the Andalusian artist Pablo Picasso. The project combines live performance with visual arts and creative cinema. It is held as part of the international event Célébration Picasso 1973-2023, which commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the painter’s death (April 8, 1973).

About Célébration Picasso 1973-2023:

April 8, 2023 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and thus the year will represent a celebration of his work and his artistic legacy in France, Spain and internationally. The French and Spanish governments wished to mark this transnational event through a bi-national commission, bringing together the cultural and diplomatic administrations of both countries. The Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 revolves around some fifty exhibitions and events to be held at renowned cultural institutions in Europe and North America that, together, address a historiographical analysis of Picasso’s work.
