Picasso, the Infinite Wake, in Puebla (México)

Puebla (Mexico) .- An art exhibition on display until January in this central Mexican city is bringing together the aquatint etchings of Pablo Picasso’s La Tauromaquia (Bullfighting) series with works by contemporary artists.

The exhibit is aimed at fostering a “dialogue” and a reflection on what follows in the wake of the influential Spanish master, a local cultural official said.

“What we’ve proposed is that there be a dialogue between the master and contemporary artists who came after him to reflect on whether Picasso had devoured everything like Saturn devoured his children,” the director of Puebla’s Municipal Institute of Art and Culture, Anel Nochebuena, told EFE, describing the Spaniard as the most important artist of the 20th century.

The exhibition consists of 56 works, including more than two-dozen aquatint etchings that Picasso (1881-1973) drew in the 1950s to illustrate Jose Delgado Guerra’s book “La Tauromaquia o el arte de torear” (Bullfighting or the Art of the Bullfighter).

Picasso’s works engage in a “dialogue” with the creations of a group of contemporary artists: Mexico’s Jose Antonio Alvarez Moran and Spain’s Eugenio Merino, Ignacio Martin de la Cruz, Kepa Garraza, Manolo Valdes, Bernardi Roig, Alberto Corazon, Pierre D’Argyll, Miquel Navarro and Juan Garaizabal.

Those 10 artists created works in response to the question, “What does Picasso mean to you?”
some of the works include one by D’Argyll showing the master imagining his famed “Guernica” painting inside his brain and a succession of paintings based on Picasso’s last self-portrait in which the Spanish artist’s face fades away until becoming a corpse.

This itinerant exhibition, titled “Picasso, la estela infinita” (Picasso: The Infinite Wake), will be on display in Puebla at the Art Gallery of the Municipal Palace until Jan. 7, 2018, before being taken to several other Mexican cities and then to Europe and the United States.
