Post-Picasso. Reaccions contemporànies
Michael FitzGerald, author of this catalogue and curator of the homonymous exhibition, and who in 2006 organised for the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York the exhibition «Picasso and American Art», has constructed an entertaining and educational tour through the production of artists from very diverse backgrounds and cultures – from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australia and Africa, who have been inspired by Picasso since his death. However, FitzGerald hasn't presented Picasso as a master to whom the rest of the artists are subordinated, if not, he has wanted to make known the way in which these creators have used the work of Picasso to elaborate their own works and how the dialogue with history and modernity has contributed to enriching and transforming contemporary culture.

Therefore, «Post-Picasso. Contemporary Reactions » dismantles the preconceived ideas and breaks the stereotypes and, at the same time shows us the fascinating ways that each of the artists has chosen to construct themselves and construct their career. A plurality and wealth of trajectories and approaches that allow us to get a deep insight into the knowledge of Picasso and his reception in an exceptional and new way.
