a day for picasso

Outfit for the day was blah blah pretty boring, bar the headscarf and my NEW SHOES! Oh, how I love them so.

After I had uni in the morning, I met up with my parents to see Picasso & His Collection at GoMA. It worked out quite brilliantly because this meant I managed to score a lift home as well… no public transport for me, hurrah! I was given two tickets to the exhibition for my birthday, but hadn’t got around to using them. Seeing as the tickets were ‘adult’ fare and I still counted as ‘concession’, I decided to give those tickets to my parents (scoring favourite-child points in the process) and then purchased my ticket at a concession fare. Plus my ticket was prettier than the original qtix ones. Afterwards we wandered over to see the Sidney Nolan retrospective at the normal Art Gallery. I think I enjoyed that as much as, possibly even more than, the Picasso exhibition.

Dad ended up buying a book containing all the works that were displayed at the exhibition.

Below are a few of my favourite pieces from the collection (none of them are actually by Picasso)

‘Les oiseaux chantent avec les doigts’ (‘Birds sing with their fingers’) – Guillaume Apollinaire

‘La Californie’ – Jacques Prévert

Collage of cardboard, paper and photograph on an envelope.

Letter – Roland Penrose
I love this because it looks like some kind of cute marsupial, but on closer inspection you can see it’s a collage of images of the Colosseum.

    Oh I am so jealous. It sucks being stuck in suburbia without awesome places like GoMA to go and see Picasso exhibits and the like.
    The opening ceremony sandals look so lovely!

    I so badly wanted to go see this but I couldn't get my act together to get to the GoMA and just like the Warhol, I missed out yet again!

    I love your sandals too!
