Boy with Lobster by Pablo Picasso

Picasso in the kitchen

A new temporary exhibition allows us to discover the work of the artist from a different perspective.

On 25 May, Barcelona's Picasso Museum is set to open a new temporary exhibition featuring 200 works, from a number of museums, institurtions and private collections, that revolve around the theme of food.

As well as being unique in its approach to his art, Picasso's Kitchen is special because it was created with the help of another genius, in this case the world-famous creative chef Ferran Adrià, who will appear in the museum's Mauri Gallery with the aim of establishing a dialogue between Picasso's creative process and contemporary culinary creation. The exhibited works have been chosen interpreting the culinary theme in the widest sense of the word. That means that the visitor will find everything from still lifes to works that make reference to the kitchen as a metaphor for the creative act, and will have the chance to get to know about some of the iconic restaurants that were important to him during his life, while exploring the role of food and cuisine in his iconography and his poetic writings and plays.

The exhibition will be open to the public until 30 September and is part of an initiative titled Picasso Mediterranean by the Musée National Picasso in Paris. Additional information is available at the following link.
