BUENOS AIRES.- The Museo de la Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero
(UNTREF) presented to the public more than 60 drawings and prints by the great Spanish painter Pablo Picasso. This exhibition has been made possible by an international cultural exchange and will remain on view until September.
The exhibition, titled "Picasso: The Look of Desire", is a review of one of the most powerful drives in Picasso: the desire, more than 60 works that make up sections such as the reconstructed body, the bodies observed; the bodies created; the eternal feminine and female loves, and the quiet secret, among others.
According to Lourdes Moreno, director of the Fundación Pablo Ruiz Picasso Casa Natal Museum of the City of Málaga, Spain, the entity that made possible the realization of the exhibition, the "desire" of the artist is to take him to "work compulsively, trying to appropriate the individual, the female body, the object and beauty. "
"And at the same time, the destruction of it, - she pointed out, Picasso becomes permanent synthesis and antithesis of himself."
The exhibition was officially opened on Friday with a ceremony presided by the Dean of the university, Anibal Jozami, Secretary of Culture of Argentina, Jorge Coscia, members of the Foundation and numerous special guests from Malaga.
As a counterpart, a project was designed to show a significant example of Argentine plastic arts and to that end, works were chosen by Antonio Berni, curated by Diana B. Wechsler (Untref), to be presented next October at the Picasso Museum in Malaga.
"The economic and logistical effort, accompanied by the dissemination for public school students in the greater Buenos Aires area and the interior of the province, the center puts the goal of our university as a necessary engine of democratization of culture in our country," said Jozami in the framework of the event.
