Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage

Jepson Center
Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage presents a rare opportunity to experience nearly 100 years of original performance designs by renowned visual artists who took their creativity to the stage. This exhibition pulls back the curtain on a lesser known but equally inspiring aspect of their creative expressions—their collaborations as designers of sets, costumes, lighting, scenery, and in some cases, complete performances. Artworks come from the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas, and showcase exquisite designs for performances by modern and contemporary artists including Pablo Picasso, Natalia Gontcharova, Henri Matisse, Alexandra Exter, Joan Miró, Louise Nevelson, and David Hockney, among others.
