Building on the same methodological approach as the exhibition Picasso Black and White, this emerging scholars symposium gathers together parallel modernist explorations of a particular formal or thematic element in the work of Picasso’s contemporaries and other artists whose careers have spanned the 20th century.

Richard Shiff, The University of Texas at Austin, presents the keynote lecture, “De Kooning: The Kick, the Twist, the Woman, the Rowboat.”

The symposium concludes with “Picasso: A Conversation” (rescheduled from November 2) in which Carmen Giménez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, Guggenheim Museum, and curator of Picasso Black and White, engages in conversation about the Spanish master and his lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette with art historian Diana Widmaier Picasso, co-curator of Picasso and Marie-Thérèse L’Amour fou (Gagosian Gallery, New York, 2011) and granddaughter of the artist, and Gary Tinterow, Director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

For a detailed scheduled and list of speakers, see the symposium page.
