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 this museum will be inaugurated at the Museo Fundación Lázaro Galdiano. The installation is part of an exhibition project that is being developed in different museums belonging to the network of State Museums under the Ministry of Culture and Sports.

In the history of 20th century art, Picasso is undoubtedly a capital figure. A polysemic term. In one of the most representative rooms of the museum -which houses works by Goya, Salvador Maella, Bayeu, Esteve or Paret and Alcázar, among others- a bust with the painter's features is exhibited, a head that in turn is a piggy bank, a piggy bank. The object is also known as "ladronera".

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.
