Exhibition on Screen continues in Limavady with Young Picasso

Mon, April 29, 2019

Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre will feature ‘Young Picasso’ on Wednesday 8th May as part of its Exhibition on Screen programme.

Exploring celebrated artists and movements, this engaging programme takes you behind the world’s most renowned museums and collections.

Pablo Picasso was one of the greatest and most prolific artists of all time right up until his death in 1973. Many films have dealt with these later years –but where did this all begin and what made Picasso in the first place?

This stunning film explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key eras – the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical masterpiece in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably when Picasso was only 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to great heights.

Tickets cost £4 but discounts are available for group bookings, schools and colleges. There are two screenings to choose from at either 11am or 3pm.
