Picasso at the Nasher

Well, his artwork anyway.

The Nasher Museum of Art will display the works of Pablo Picasso starting August 20th. The exhibit is taking a new look at his work and it's connection to text:
The Nasher Museum presents a groundbreaking exhibition examining Pablo Picasso's lifelong relationship with writers and the many ways in which language affected his work. Picasso and the Allure of Language comprises some 60 works in all media by Picasso, as well as select examples by fellow artist Georges Braque, and photographs, letters, manuscripts and book projects by a diverse group of artists and writers. Together, these works illuminate Picasso's deep and multidimensional interest in writing and language, and challenge the notion of what have been considered highlights of his lifetime of work.

Tickets are on-sale now for between $5 and $15 (depending on whether you are a Duke students/staff or over the age of 7). Visit http://nasher.duke.edu/picasso/ for more information.
