Omar Ba | From Africa to the Americas: Face-to-Face Picasso, Past and Present | Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

May 29, 2018

Hales is pleased to announce the inclusion of Omar Ba's Afrique, Pillage, Arbres, Richesses in the exhibition Africa to the Americas: Face-to-Face Picasso, Past and Present at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. 

 

From Africa to the Americas: Face-to-Face Picasso, Past and Present looks at the transformation in our view of the arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas from the end of the 19th century to the present day. Following milestones in the life of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and in history, the exhibition explores the close relationship between the Spanish master and these arts, focusing on the history of attitudes. Throughout the show, works by contemporary artists of African descent provide a counterpoint, increasing the points of view on the international history of art that requires rethinking.
