Calder-Picasso is the first major museum exhibition to explore the artistic relationship between Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso, two of the most innovative and influential artists of the 20th century. In more than 100 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs—including many iconic works—the exhibition presents a compelling visual conversation centered around the artists’ exploration of the void, or the absence of space, which both Calder and Picasso defined from the figure through to abstraction.With questions about this evening viewing, email specialevents@famsf.org
