“The exhibition marks the realization of a dream we have held since our opening in 2007,” said Phillip Tinari, director of the UCCA.
“To present not only recent developments in contemporary art but to examine the underpinnings of contemporary art by showing modern masters. The story of Picasso is relevant to our audience in China, as individuals here continue to answer the challenges of creativity, originality and innovation.”
