Centre Pompidou METZ
26 May to 24 September 2012
1917 addresses the theme of artistic creation in wartime, on the scale of a single “impossible year ” (Jean-Jacques Becker, 1917 en Europe : l’année impossible. Bruxelles, Éd. Complexe, 1997) when the world floundered in endless, devastating conflict.
It will feature Picasso’s monumental work, the overture curtain for the ballet “Parade” which has not been shown in France in over twenty years.
