Museum of Cultural Heritage of the Department of Cultural Leisure of Hong Kong (LCSD) opened the exhibition «Picasso - Masterpieces from the Picasso Museum, Paris». This exposition became one of the cultural events to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the establishment of a special administrative district in Hong Kong.
The exhibition of Picasso’s masterpieces is organized by the joint efforts of LCSD and the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, as well as with the participation of the Historical Museum of Hong Kong and the National Picasso Museum in Paris. It will be held from May 19 to July 22 at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The exhibition is also one of the most striking events dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Le French May, in which LCSD is one of the main partners.
The representative of LCSD said: «We are proud to present this magnificent exhibition in Hong Kong. The exhibition will feature 55 original works by Picasso, covering every stage of the prolific career of Picasso - its blue, pink, primitive, cubic, neoclassical stages and the period of expressionism. « In addition to demonstrating the masterpieces of the famous artist, the exhibition will also feature about 50 photographs and four documentaries. These materials will greatly enhance the understanding of Picasso and his art by the people of Hong Kong.
«This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of the works of Picasso, which has ever been held in Hong Kong, and we expect that it will become the center of cultural and social life for the inhabitants of Hong Kong and its guests,» the representative of the organizers added. Due to the limited opportunities in the gallery and because of the short exhibition period, Hong Kong Heritage Museum will extend the opening hours from 10 am to 8 pm daily. The museum will be closed, as usual, on Tuesdays.
