The latest “immersive” art show coming to Metro Vancouver will focus on the life and work of Pablo Picasso.
Vancouver Convention Centre’s East Building will stage the Western Canadian debut of “Imagine Picasso,” starting Oct. 27 for “a limited time.”
Tickets go on sale Saturday, Sept. 11 at 10 a.m, online at imagine-picasso.com.
The waterfront venue is where the similar “Imagine Van Gogh” show has drawn crowds since March. Both shows are brought here by Tandem Expositions/Paquin Entertainment, in partnership with France-based Encore Productions.
“‘Imagine Picasso’ features more than 200 of the artist’s paintings, shown together for the first time — from his Blue and Rose periods on through Cubism and the prolific later years,” an event advisory notes.
“The paintings, projected onto nine full-blown Origami-style structures, offer a unique and novel perspective on the work of Picasso.”
