Museum of Cycladic Art’s Picasso Exhibition awarded the Youniversal prize at GFAA

The Museum of Cycladic Art (MCA) in Athens was honored with the Youniversal Award for its exhibition Picasso and Antiquity: Line and Clay at this year's 6th annual Global Fine Art Awards (GFAA) on May 11, 2020.  The MCA exhibition ran from June 20-October 20, 2019 and included 68 rare ceramics and drawings by the iconic Pablo Picasso, featuring birds, animals, sea creatures, humans, and mythological beasts (centaurs, the Minotaur), some inspired by ancient drama and comedies, presented for the first time with 67 ancient works, creating another “Divine Dialogue” between Greek antiquity and modern art.  Sandra Marinopoulou, President of the Museum of Cycladic Art, said in the press release on May 12, “The Museum of Cycladic Art is its people: not only those who work in it, but especially all those who respond to our every invitation. Because every creative effort acquires importance and reason of existence only with the acceptance of the public. In the unprecedented conditions we have been living in for the last few months, everyone close to the Museum has embraced each of our new proposals. Even if our communication at this time is limited to the digital world, the response is always moving and very encouraging.  The tremendous response from the public voting in the Global Fine Art Awards for the most popular exhibition was another example of this two-way relationship that we look forward to continuing closely when the doors of the Museum reopen. A big thank you to all of you who voted for us, but also to those who worked with dedication and enthusiasm for the realization of the exhibition Picasso and Antiquity: Line and Clay.”  The GFAA program presented online the list of winners for its sixth edition- juried from 99 nominees represent works on six continents, in 27 countries and 74 cities.
