To mark the end of the exhibition Cubism and War: The Crystal in the Flame, which has been running since October, Barcelona’s Museu Picasso is teaming up with the Conservatory of the Liceu to stage a special day on Thursday 26 January titled Cubism and Music: A debate on the relationship.

After the visit, a series of presentations will begin in the meeting halls of the museum featuring the art experts and academics Josep Pla i Carrera and Michela Rosso, followed by a sessions of questions and answers moderated by composer, music theoretician and pianist Benjamin Davies.

In the evening the actions moves to the Conservatory of the Liceu opera house where, at 8.30pm, composer and musicologist Benet Casablancas will give a talk on Music, Painting and Cubism. Analogies, confluences and counterpoints. The day will end with a concert featuring the Liceu XXI ensemble conducted by Manel Valdivieso.

All of these events are free but places are limited and it is a good idea to reserve beforehand at museupicasso_reserves@bcn.cat.

The exhibition Cubism and War brings together the work of artists who experienced the First World War (1914-1918) and who refused to witness the conflict or be used to create propaganda. Curated by Christopher Green, it includes works by Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Diego Rivera and Maria Blanchard.
