The Picasso Celebration 1973-2023, an initiative promoted by the Governments of Spain and France for the 50th anniversary of his death, has already registered more than 3 million visitors in the 46 national and international exhibitions that have taken place.

The Government of Spain, in collaboration with the Government of France, has marked 2023 as the Year of Picasso through a joint initiative: the Picasso Celebration 1973-2023. This program represents the first international collaborative tribute that highlights the life and work of Picasso, with more than 50 exhibitions and activities that have taken place in renowned cultural institutions in Europe and the United States, according to a press release.

The program, whose official opening took place in September 2022 with a ceremony presided over by the King and Queen of Spain at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, kicked off in June 2022 with 'Picasso - El Greco' at the Kunstmuseum Basel.

Since then, 17 exhibitions have opened in Spain and 49 parallel activities have attracted more than 1.5 million visitors.
