Call for Papers

The Museo Picasso Málaga will host the IV International Congress on Pablo Picasso on the 9th, 10th, 11th of October 2018, in the city of Málaga. Thanks to the initiative of the Musée national Picasso-Paris, since 2015 the congress has offered an annual forum where recent academic studies on Picasso’s work, stature and sociocultural context are presented and debated.

Topic examples include, but are not limited, to the following:

-How do economic, social, and political factors enter into Picasso’s art?
-What social and political meanings do critics, collectors, scholars and curators attribute to his work?
