Picasso Untitled / With Music: Niño de Elche x10

Within the programming of

Picasso: Untitled / With
22 Dec 2023

Voces que caben en un cubo [Voices that Fit in a Bucket] is Niño de Elche’s proposal for the public programme of the Picasso: Untitled exhibition. A choral concert in which he seeks a common voice, a humanist picture to keep our gaze on a diverse, transversal and intergenerational identity painted in pink.

Target audience: General public
Location: Patio
Price: 10€

Picasso: Untitled is a project of La Casa Encendida and the Almine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso Foundation (FABA) curated by Eva Franch i Gilabert. The exhibition has the support of the National Commission for the Commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso, and the collaboration of the Community of Madrid. The exhibition is part of the official program of the Picasso Celebration 1973-2023, with Telefónica as a collaborating company in Spain.

Picasso: Untitled / With Music exposes Picasso to multiple voices that spill out of the exhibition room and invite a multidisciplinary interpretation of the artist and his work. Niño de Elche, the last guest in the programme, brings a Picassian chorus as the finishing touch to the exhibition that, over the last eight months, has sought to create a polyphony with fifty artists around Picasso’s work and the anniversary year at La Casa Encendida. 

Niño de Elche invites ten voices to join him in a workshop and compose the show entitled Voces que caben en un cubo

“The world title is a term associated with the earth, something that is inscribed in the floor, in the ground. This notion suggests that anything that doesn't have a title is lacking a foundation, a root, an anchor. A voice that is earthed is the physical recognition of the space it occupies. Body and architecture, structures of a home. The voice is what combines the notion of interior and exterior in a human being. A voice workshop is where the participants come together to sculpt human air in the shape of a word, song, cry, sigh or breath.  Rather than searching for the earth, it is a search for air. A painting by Picasso, a Christmas sweet, the gaze, the water we drink, a Bible, a mother’s kiss, or death... none of this would be possible without the air of observation and listening to that air. The common voice we seek is somewhere between graffiti and cubist painting, between the melodious song of an adult and the cry of a newborn baby. We need a humanist picture to keep our gaze on a diverse, transversal and intergenerational identity. And all as if in a pink-coloured world.” Niño de Elche
