Course Description

Instructor: Laurel Humble - Head of Creative Aging and Lifelong Learning at the High Museum of Art

Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso are two of the foremost figures in the history of twentieth-century art. Conceived by the artists’ grandsons, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso and Alexander S. C. Rower, Calder – Picasso brings together more than one hundred paintings, sculptures and works on paper that center on the artists’ exploration of the void, or absence of space. This conversation will explore a selection of works on view in the exhibition, providing examples of key moments in each artist’s career, artistic innovations, and insightful juxtapositions of their works, and inviting you to look closely, share your thoughts and ask questions.


Calder – Picasso is on view at the High Museum of Art from June 26 to September 19, 2021. Timed tickets are required for all visitors. Reserve online at high.org/tickets.
