Pablo Ruiz Picasso (1881-1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre set designer who spent most of his adult life in France. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage and the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. This photo of him was taken in 1962. (Source: Wikipedia)

This summer, the Quebec City Convention Centre will be hosting the North American première of Imagine Picasso, a huge immersive exhibit created by Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron in collaboration with architect Rudy Ricciotti and art historian Androula Michael.

Produced by Tandem Expositions in collaboration with Encore Productions, the team behind the exceptional success of the Imagine Van Gogh exhibit held at the convention centre last summer, Imagine Picasso offers a fresh perspective on the Spanish artist’s work. Spectators will view more than 200 of his paintings projected in a constantly changing format on huge floor-to-ceiling screens. Viewers will be immersed in the heart of the artist’s work, allowing them to explore every detail and be carried away with the experience.
