Maltese art fans clear your schedules; from the 7th of April right up till the end of June Malta will be hosting almost 150 pieces by the legendary artists Pablo Picasso and Joan Mirò.
The exhibition, called Picasso & Mirò, The Flesh & The Spirit, will be hosted at the President’s Palace, and is being funded by Fundación MAPFRE in collaboration with Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti and the Office of the President.
Speaking to NET News, the curator of the event explained that it was taking place in tandem with 60 other cultural hubs around Europe to celebrate Picasso’s special bond with the Mediterranean.
The two artists’ work was paired together because of the similarities that run through their style and creative process.
It seems Malta has turned into somewhat of a ‘Picasso hub’ of late as superstar Antonio Banderas pops up across our island to film scenes for an upcoming biopic for the National Geographic Channel.
