CL's Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: Works of the great Spanish master Pablo Picasso are now on view in Atlanta through a massive multimedia exhibit at Pullman Yards. Covering the entirety of a unique career that spanned multiple styles throughout the 20th century, “Imagine Picasso” lets visitors see more than 200 of his works assembled in one place, unlike anywhere else in the world. The show was curated by Annabelle Mauger with Julien Baron, French pioneers of multi-projection concepts, to present a modern perspective on Picasso’s vast output. Known for producing Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, Mauger gave a detailed tour of her new venture for the press before the Atlanta opening and said the artist’s estate - notoriously finicky - gave her sole rights to carry out the project. “That was so important for me. It’s been such a great responsibility, but a nice one.” The artist’s grandson, Olivier Picasso, says the exhibition would have pleased his grandfather “because there are no limits to artistic creation. He himself was someone who explored all forms of creation: painting, sculpture, engraving, ceramics, poetry, theatre – he was a pioneer. I think that if he had lived, the digital world of today would have fascinated him.” — KCM
