Thirty years after the exhibition Picasso poète, le crayon qui parle (Picasso Poet, the Talking Pencil), which was on display at the Musée national Picasso-Paris from 8 November 1989 to 29 January 1990, marking the publication of Picasso Écrits by Gallimard/Rmn, the Museu Picasso now looks to reveal to a new generation the importance of poetic writing in Picasso’s creative process and revisit it in a broader context, with reference to further research on Picasso, the close ties between writing and painting; the textual work (collage, repetitions, variations), which echoes his work as a painter, and, most importantly, the autobiographical content of this “intimate diary”, which sheds light on the intimacy, historical context and complex personality of the artist.

Curated by:
Emmanuel Guigon, director of the Museu Picasso, Barcelona; Marie-Laure Bernadac, honorary general curator of the Museums of France; Claustre Rafart, curator of graphic arts at the Museu Picasso, Barcelona; and Androula Michael, tenured professor at the University of Picardie Jules Verne and UFR des Arts in Paris
