Cubism is often only associated with the innovations of its founders Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. 
The Expansion of Cubism, 1911-1920 explores the vibrant intellectual and artistic exchanges of the robust Paris-based community that included pioneering Cubist artists such as Fernand Léger, Marie Laurencin, Jean Metzinger, and Max Weber.

Join Andrew Eschelbacher, former PMA Susan Donnell and Harry W. Konkel Associate Curator of European Art, for a conversation exploring the art that defined Cubism in expansive and challenging terms as seen in The Expansion of Cubism, 1911-1920.
