On 28 April, the Centre Pompidou-Metz will open an exhibition that will explore the intimate relationships between artists including Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray and Lee Miller, Charles and Ray Eames, Pablo Picasso and Dora Maar.

Curated by Emma Lavigne, Jane Alison, Elia Biezunski and Cloé Pitiot, in partnership with the Barbican Centre, London, the exhibition will present artworks and archival material that will shed light on some of the most iconic artist’s couples and their creative relationships. Works from prestigious collections from around the world will be brought together for this exceptional exhibition running until 20 August. The very idea of freedom, love and modernity, as impacted by social, artistic and technical evolution, is explored through the prism of the couple.
