New York: Francis Picabia at the MoMA
Among the great modern artists of the last century,
Francis Picabia remains also one of the most mysterious. Avoiding any singular style, his work encompasses poetry, painting, publishing and cinema. Although he was known as one of the leaders of the Dada movement, his career led him from Impressionism to radical abstraction, from Dadaist provocation to pseudo-classicism and from realism to informal art. The exhibition, headed “Our heads are round so that our thoughts can change direction” offers a comprehensive study of Picabia’s audacious, irreverent and deeply influential work on his contemporaries. It is the first exhibition in the United States devoted to the French artist.
