On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso and as part of the activities programmed for this commemoration, the intervention designed by Rogelio López Cuenca - National Prize for Plastic Arts 2022 - for the National Sculpture Museum will be inaugurated at the National Sculpture Museum. The installation is part of an exhibition project that is being developed in different museums belonging to the network of State Museums belonging to the Ministry of Culture and Sport.

The installation designed for the space known as "Rincón Rojo" proposes a critical approach to a deep-rooted cliché of patriarchal culture, that of the-artist-and-the-model, of which, once again, both Picasso's work and his personal history with regard to his "muses" represent an archetypal example.

In the Casa del Sol, for its part, the intervention will consist of the "infiltration", within the collection of plaster casts, of a bust of the "hero" Picasso, the mythical King Midas of 20th century art.

In addition, the project is completed with PI©A$$o™, a publication in the form of a newspaper which will be available free of charge to visitors to the various project venues, and which brings together a selection of articles by leading researchers and scholars both on Picasso's work and on the diversity of ways in which the phenomenon of his contradictory fame unfolds and is consumed in contemporary society.
