Exhibition celebrates Spain’s 1937 International Exposition pavilion, which showcased works by Picasso and Miró
An exhibition coming to London in January will attempt to recreate the impact of the Spanish pavilion of 1937, a little gallery built as cheaply as possible at the Paris International Exposition by Spain’s republican government at the height of the civil war.
The fame of the pavilion, which showcased the country’s radical leftwing artists and the horrors that were happening to its people, was almost entirely retrospective. Few critics who visited the exhibition even mentioned it.
