Expectations are high for the Western Canadian debut of Imagine Picasso, coming to Vancouver’s Convention Centre on October 27th for a limited time. Make sure that you’re among the first to experience the one-of-a-kind immersive exhibition.
Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron have created Imagine Picasso in collaboration with art historian Androula Michael and one of the leading figures of the new French architecture movement, Rudy Ricciotti.
With more than 200 of Picasso’s paintings shown together for the first time—from his Blue and Rose periods on through Cubism and the prolific later years—Imagine Picasso offers an unprecedented dialogue between Ricciotti and one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. Ricciotti was inspired to create this spectacular scenography from the paper sculptures Picasso made for his children. The paintings, projected onto nine full-blown Origami-style structures, offer a unique and novel perspective on the work of Picasso.
The artistic approach in Image Totale©, designed by Mauger and Baron, immerses the viewer in the heart of the paintings, allowing visitors to explore the painting’s details and fully experience the power of Picasso’s work. Imagine Picasso pays tribute to the genius and the freedom of Picasso’s creation with this digital exhibition licensed to Encore Productions by the Picasso Estate.
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) embodies the Modern Art Master. Constantly reinventing himself, he revolutionized forms and academic aesthetics through several art mediums. Spanning an impressive 78-year career, Picasso proved to be one of the most prolific creative geniuses of all-time, producing some 65,000 artworks – including paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and ceramics. Eminently notorious, Picasso is more than a household name in the West, an artist whose name became a famous worldwide brand.
Presented by Tandem Expositions and produced by Encore Productions (France)—a Fimalac Entertainment Group company—Imagine Picasso received rave reviews during their first Canadian stop.
In consultation with local health authorities, Imagine Picasso is designed as a contactless experience and will have limited capacity, timed entries, and will operate in full accordance with British Columbia’s current public health guidelines.
