Following rumours, MoMA confirmed on 30 October that they are planning a retrospective of Dadaist Master Francis Picabia for 2016.
The retrospective is scheduled to take place November 2016 and will include the work Tableau Rastadada (1920) which the museum acquired at Art Basel in June 2014. Little has been revealed about the exhibition as of yet, but the museum already owns 10 prints, nine paintings, and eight drawings by the French-born painter, poet and leading figure of the Dada movement. Picabia is known for his refusal to be categorised, questioning existing attitudes surrounding the artistic process; however his works are also full of hidden messages and in-jokes.
The exhibition is being organised by Anne Umland, a curator of painting and sculpture at MoMA.
