Picasso: Becoming the Faun

Remai Modern’s collection of Picasso linocuts is a nearly comprehensive holding of his work in this medium, including many stages and working proofs. His 1962 linocut, Tête de Faune, and the associated series of stages is a compelling sequence. It reveals the artist’s process and his technical exploration of the medium but, when viewed in series, it also builds an intriguing narrative of transformation. These linocuts provide the starting point for Becoming the Faun, a multifaceted exhibition that explores the formation of self, processes of change and ideas of becoming.

Live elements including a new performance by Alasdair Rees, opening and closing performances of modern and new music featuring the University of Saskatchewan’s collection of Amati instruments and a durational music composition by composer, Darren Miller will create an exhibition space that is dynamic and evolving.
