Picasso’s Guernica tapestry returns to the United Nations

21 February 2022
Caption: Picasso’s iconic Guernica tapestry has been cared for by conservators and rehung outside the United Nations Security Council Chamber. It is widely agreed that the impactful message of this important artwork extends beyond any one entity, institution, or audience. Picasso’s original exposition of the work challenged a wide audience of viewers to confront the powerful symbols in a visceral manner through an international tour of exhibition.
