Beijing - Between June 15 and September 1, 2019, UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, presents “Picasso – Birth of a Genius,” the most significant exhibition of work by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) ever to take place in China. The exhibition, which offers a comprehensive overview of the first three decades of Picasso’s career, includes 103 works drawn entirely from the collection of the the Musée national Picasso-Paris, which trace Picasso’s development from childhood to middle age.

Curated by Emilia Philippot, Head of Collections, Musée national Picasso-Paris, the exhibition has been conceived and organized specifically for this presentation at UCCA and in China, and includes paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Taken together, this selection of works realized between 1893 and 1921 constitutes the core of the exhibition and tell the story of the creative formation and evolution of the most daring, original, and prolific talent in the history of modern art.
