On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso's death and within the activities programmed for this commemoration, the intervention designed for this museum by Rogelio López Cuenca -National Prize for Plastic Arts 2022- will be inaugurated at the National Museum of Decorative Arts. 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 Sport.

Throughout the permanent exhibition, dozens of caganers -recurrent figures in the nativity scene tradition present in the museum itself- have been distributed. The pieces, from a project carried out in collaboration with Elo Vega (The Prodigal Son / El hijo pródigo. Museu Picasso de Barcelona, 2019), have the face of the artist and are characterized with different clothes and attributes alluding to the diversity of facets of the Picasso myth.

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.
