Pablo Picasso put down the brush and took up the pen in occupied Paris for four days in mid-January 1941 to write Desire Caught by the Tail. This rarely seen Surrealist play on the hardships of World War II was first presented on March 19, 1944, as a reading featuring artists and friends. On the occasion of the Guggenheim’s Picasso Black and White exhibition, on view October 25, 2012–January 23, 2013, Works & Process with the assistance of Angela Westwater, founding partner of Sperone Westwater, will bring together a cast of artists for two special performances directed by SITI Company’s Anne Bogart.
