      Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was a witness and frontline actor of the music currents developing in Barcelona, Paris, and other sites prior to World War II. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Picasso’s death, this symposium will explore the mutual influences between the Visual arts (particularly in the orbit of Picasso) and Music, and how aspects of musical modernity emerged through the negotiation of different cultural, technical and stylistic parameters.
