CinemArt Screening: ‘Le Mystere Picasso’

  • Fri Jun 7 2019, 12:15 PM

Henri-Georges Clouzot peers into the imagination of Picasso via his studio and emerges with a film that captures the painter's revolutionary creative process. Through a combination of stop-motion and time-lapse photography, Picasso’s Cubist works come to life on screen. Paint strokes and splashes of colour magically appear, as empty canvases become platforms for a series of daring drawings and paintings that exist only within the confines of this film. CinemArt is a film series presented by Hauser & Wirth in collaboration with Arthouse Zürich. A cinematic journey into the art world, this series offers unique views into the lives and work of significant international artists, including a selection connected to Hauser & Wirth’s programme. The selected documentaries feature artists and renowned artworld figures including Eduardo Chillida, Peggy Guggenheim, Piet Oudolf, Fabio Mauri, Picasso, Joseph Beuys, Max Bill and Maria Lassnig.
