Picasso's masterpieces to be exhibited in Turkey
In a statement, the Arkas Art Center in the Aegean province of İzmir said it would host Turkey's section of the "Picasso-Mediterranee" project, which includes a series of exhibitions in various institutions in Mediterranean countries.
The "Picasso-Mediterranee" project -- initiated by the Picasso-Paris National Museum -- promotes a multifaceted and multidisciplinary dynamic cultural cycle in 2017-2019, and eyes to strengthen ties across all shores, according to project's website.
The cultural exhibition of Picasso's works on the performing arts will be based on a curatorial fiction, the statement said.
Including 83 works from the Picasso-Paris National Museum, Fondation Julio Gonzalez, Palais Garnier in Paris and the Kontaxopoulos-Prokopchuk Collection in Brussels, the event will also feature photographs documenting the close ties Picasso maintained with other artists, writers, and musicians.
"Picasso-Mediterranee" was organized by more than 70 organizations in 10 Mediterranean countries and has hosted at least three million visitors since 2017.
