From Africa to the Americas: Face-to-face Picasso, Past and Present,  presents a comparison of Pablo Picasso’s works with those of non-Western artists, based on an anthropology of art. This juxtaposition raises questions on both sides (nudity, sexuality, impulses and loss) via plastic parallel solutions (disfiguring or deconstructing the body, for instance). It also explores traditions, tasks and major works of art defined as “tribal”.
