An exhibition exploring the ongoing power of Pablo Picasso’s iconic painting Guernica (1937) through a display of contemporary reworking.
2017 marks the eightieth anniversary of the bombing of the Basque town of Gernika in Spainand of Picasso’s anti-fascist painting, created in protest against that attack and others targeting the civilian population.
The exhibition, curated by Dr Nicola Ashmore, features works from across the globe that remake Picasso’s original Guernica for political protests and resonate with the original intention of the work – “to push back at those in power who choose to act to the detriment of civilians”.
