Imagine Picasso is a collaboration between creators Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, art historian Androula Michael, and leading figure in the French architecture movement Rudy Ricciotti.
The experience will feature more than 200 of Picasso’s paintings being shown together for the very first time.
Paintings will be projected onto nine full-blown Origami-style structures, which will offer a one-of-a-kind perspective on the work of the great Picasso. The experience will last approximately one hour.
Picasso had a 78-year-long career and was one of the most prolific artists of all time.
Non-commercial photography is permitted, and organizers encourage guests to share their photos online.
Organizers point out that Imagine Picasso is designed as a contactless experience. It will have limited capacity and timed entries, and the event will be in full accordance with current public health orders.
